In July 2016, happens mark 50 years of anniversary, Horison decided to stop circulation of their print magazine and totally become an online magazine, titled horisononline. Later in January 2018, Horison back with printed version and publish “only” as a quarter magazine.

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.
