The great Indonesian writer and thinker, an important literary figure, ACHDIAT KARTA MIHARDJA passed away #onthisday in 2010 at the age of 99 in Canberra, Australia. He achieved fame in 1949 with his first novel, Atheis (The Atheist), which became a set text in schools and universities. The novel explored the conflict between traditional and modern world views, in particular Marxism and Islam. Three years later the novel was translated by RJ Maguire into English.


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.
