Hailing from Eastern Indonesia, these writers will share their challenges and triumphs to be recognized on the national stage.

Namun angin perubahan dari timur mulai berhembus, dan permintaan akan suara-suara yang beragam terus meningkat. Berasal dari Indonesia timur, para penulis ini akan berbagai tantangan mereka untuk diakui di panggung nasional.
