Each year the UWRF puts a call out to emerging writers across the archipelago: send us your stories. From hundreds of submissions, the most outstanding new Indonesian voices are published in the annual Bilingual Anthology – a rich insight into the nation’s language, culture, history and mythology. Join us to celebrate.

Setiap tahun UWRF memberikan kesempatan kepada para penulis-penulis baru di seluruh Nusantara: kirimi kami cerita Anda. Dari ratusan karya yang masuk, suara-suara baru Indonesia yang paling menonjol diterbitkan dalam Antologi Bilingual tahunan – sebuah wawasan yang kaya untuk mengenal bahasa, budaya, sejarah, dan mitologi bangsa. Bergabunglah bersama kami untuk merayakannya.
