Southeast Asia’s publishing scene continues to grow and evolve, but not without its unique challenges.

These speakers discuss the importance of sharing Southeast Asia’s emerging voices with the world.

Untuk wilayah dengan budaya, sejarah, dan bahasa yang sangat kaya, banyak penulis dengan karya terkenalnya sering berjuang untuk mendapatkan pengakuan di panggung internasional.
