What does Bali look like through the eyes of some of its most promising young writers? As one of the world’s top travel destinations, countless words have been written about the island by foreign writers, but it’s still rare to hear the perspectives of Balinese writers themselves, especially younger authors. Explore Bali’s literature scene and unique local perspectives with these talented young voices.

Seperti apa Bali menurut pandangan beberapa penulis mudanya yang paling menjanjikan? Sebagai salah satu tujuan wisata utama dunia, banyak sekali kata yang ditulis tentang pulau ini oleh penulis asing, tetapi kita masih jarang mendengar perspektif penulis Bali sendiri, terutama penulis yang lebih muda. Jelajahi dunia sastra Bali dan perspektif lokal yang unik bersama suara-suara muda berbakat ini.
