But the eastern winds of change are blowing, and demand for regionally diverse voices is growing. Hailing from Eastern Indonesia, these writers will share their challenges and triumphs to be recognized on the national stage.

Berasal dari Indonesia timur, para penulis ini akan berbagai tantangan mereka untuk diakui di panggung nasional.
