On this day in 1927, RIVAI APIN was born. He has worked as a police assistant (and as a black marketeer), but for the most part, his occupation has been that of an editor. Closely associated with Chairil Anwar, Apin has published comparatively little poetry. Unlike Anwar, however, he has exerted a very considerable influence on the Indonesian literary scene by extraliterary means, principally by his work as an editor.

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.
