Once a contributor of feature articles to The Jakarta Post, he went on to become a full-time features reporter with the Jakarta Globe. He has published two novels. His short stories have been run in various newspapers and magazines, and have been included in Jurnal Cerpen Indonesia (Indonesian Short Story Journal) and a number of collective short story anthologies.

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.
