Goenawan Mohamad with his work Sajak-sajak Lengkap (Complete Poems) won the prestigious Khatulistiwa Award, of which the jury consists of 45 persons judging in three phases. The award was announced by John B. Arnold from Ernst & Young, and was received by Ayu Utami on behalf of Goenawan Mohamad, who was abroad at that time. The collection of Goenawan’s poems got the award, conceived by Richard Oh from the QB World Books, setting aside other nominated works. Sapardi Djoko Damono is the initiator of the award, and also the Chief Editor of Jurnal Puisi (Journal for Poems), where those awarded poems had been published.

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.
