Will Harris is a writer of Chinese Indonesian and British heritage, born and based in London. His first full poetry collection, RENDANG, engages with the pain and promise of self-perception. Will shows us new ways to think about the contradictions of identity and cultural memory, while his characters speak to us in multiple languages. Join him for a wide-ranging conversation from questioning narrative structures to the construction of identity.

Will Harris adalah penulis berdarah Tiongkok Indonesia, dan warisan Inggris, yang lahir dan besar di London. Kumpulan puisi lengkap pertamanya, RENDANG, melibatkan derita dan janji persepsi diri. Will akan menunjukan cara berpikir yang baru terhadap kontradiksi identitas dan memori budaya, sementara karakter-karakternya berbicara kepada kita dengan beberapa bahasa. Bergabunglah dengan Will untuk perbincangan yang luas dari mempertanyakan struktur narasi sampai struktur identitas.
