new collection

In Which We Emerge


Dear readers,

We are honoured – and elated – to publish this year’s selection of emerging writers. From Andre Septiawan’s Suara Murai, whose call for home infuses his poetry, to Pratiwi Juliani’s Atraksi Lumba-Lumba, whose collection of short stories explores the darkness and deceit of the human heart, to Muhammad Wahyudi’s Serayu Malam, who pulls us into his characters’ lives as they embark on a cross-country train trip, to Darmawati Majid, who appears and disappears between tradition and modernity within her short stories. These work spans across style, themes, and movements within the archipelago, and represent the best and the brightest of the generation.
