“Translation, here, is decolonial feminist work.”- from the Foreword by Françoise Vergès.

What are the histories, constraints, and possibilities of language in relation to bodies, origins, land, colonialism, gender, war, displacement, desire, and migration?

Moving across genres, memories, belongings, and borders, these luminous essays by poets, writers, and translators invite us to consider translation as a form of ethical and political love – one that requires attentive regard of an other – and a making and unmaking of self.

Contributors include: Khairani Barokka, Yasmine Haj, Otoniya J. Okot Bitek, Nedra Rodrigo, Suneela Mubayi, Iryn Tushabe, Gopika Jadeja, Rahat Kurd, Geetha Sukumaran, Norah Alkharashi, and Lisa Ndejuru.

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.
