Kusala Sastra Khatulistiwa


An annual award that recognizes Indonesia’s best prose and poetry, and initiated to celebrate the leading writers in the Indonesian literary scene—providing them not only with recognition from the local literary community, but also funding for their craft. Formerly known as Khatulistiwa Literary Award, Kusala Sastra Khatulistiwa was founded in 2001 by author and film director Richard Oh and the then-chief executive of Plaza Senayan, Takeshi Ichiki.


The 19th Kusala Sastra Khatulistiwa

Awarded on Oct 16, 2019 at Atrium Plasa Senayan, Jakarta




About Us

For short, our main feature, the writer's directory, provides a way for writers to find one another, but more importantly, the resources provided make it easy for event hosts—especially for international event hosts—literary organizers, arts administrators, librarians, booksellers, and readers to get in touch with writers. It's a HOME FOR INDONESIAN WRITERS. We strive to break down the language barriers that have prevented Indonesian books or literature from becoming more widespread.

Questions, comments, articles, info, etc. are more than welcome. Just send us an e-mail, mention us on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook or use the contact form.
