IDN Times will held the second Indonesia Writers Festival in 6-7 September 2019. Indonesia Writers Festival is a creative writing festival that will involve writers from diverse writing-discipline. This year, we are aiming to reach bigger audience but with the same purpose, to ‘Empower Indonesians Through Writing’. Universitas Multimedia Nusantara in Serpong will have the honor to host this event.

What makes Indonesia Writers Festival unique is its multi-stakeholders approach. We believe that collaboration is important to produce thought-provoking discussion and newborn ideas about literacy in Indonesia. Therefore, we invite journalist, script-writer, song-writer, novelist, copywriter, strategist, social media specialist, author, and citizen-journalist to share their knowledge and experience to our audience.

On Indonesia Writers Festival 2019, you can expect to gain new knowledge while also having fun. There will be film screenings and music performance to entertain our audience. But the most important part is the talk show and workshop from our notable speakers and experts. We are proud to announce our line up consisting of 24 speakers:
