On October 28, 2017, the Lontar Foundation will celebrate its thirtieth anniversary. In its three decades of existence, Lontar has overseen the translation and publication of literary work by more than 850 Indonesian authors. This includes several hundred short stories, almost two thousand poems, tens of plays, and dozens of novels. Because of Lontar’s work, Indonesian literature can now be taught anywhere in the world through the medium of English. Indonesia has finally begun to have a presence on the world’s literary stage. They are now fundraising in support of new initiatives. To learn more about the organization and their projects, visit their website. To support their continued work in Indonesian literature, please consider donating via their Give2Asia link.
