A writer, actor and theatre director. Her debut collection of stories, Nokturnal Melankolia, about the beauty and esthetics of depression, was nominated for the Kusala Literature Award and has been made into a theatre piece. She is working on a new novel, Anjangsana, about her personal relationship with her nanny who was silenced after Tragedy 65. In 2019, Enny collaborated with the Dutch writer and musician Robin Block on the poetry collection In Between, Di Antara. In it, they seek out their personal stories, (family) memories and dreams, as well as their shared (Indonesian) history. The project resulted in the performance A Passage, Sebuah Antara, a mix of poems, songs, movement and images, which they performed in October 2019 at the Literature and Ideas Festival (LIFEs) in Jakarta. Enny says: “For me, historical events consist of personal histories. Stories of people whose chronicles we have forgotten. That is precisely why we must tell them.”1

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.
