Is there something universal about small towns and rural life? A lack of anonymity, a close community? Does it allow writers to go places that cities don’t? We’ve gathered writers from Australia, Indonesia, New Zealand and Portugal to discuss the insights and inspiration that come from writing beyond city limits.

Adakah hal universal yang berkaitan dengan kota-kota kecil dan kehidupan pedesaan? Barangkali, kurangnya hal anonim atau justru adanya keakraban di antara masyarakatnya? Bukankah hal ini menjadi alasan yang memungkinkan para penulis mengunjungi tempat tersebut untuk mendapatkan hal-hal yang tidak bisa disuguhkan oleh perkotaan? Kami telah mengumpulkan para penulis dari Australia, Indonesia, Selandia Baru, dan Portugal untuk mendiskusikan gagasan dan inspirasi yang bisa diperoleh dari pengalaman menulis mereka di kawasan terpencil.
