Antologi Atita, Wartamana, Anagata: Past, Present, and Future is a compilation of short stories curated from Emerging UWRF writers spanning the years 2008 to 2022. As the Festival commemorates its 20th Anniversary, the intention is to reintroduce previously published short stories through re-curation. This year’s anthology book serves as a retrospective, showcasing the Festival’s contribution to the growth of Indonesian literature by promoting gifted young authors. Additionally, it includes a new short story by an Emerging 2022 writer who participated in a writing workshop with Cynthia Dewi Oka.
