Even before graduating, I had started a business that launched my career in information technology. Later on, I also learned how to do public relations, marketing communications, and, for the past four years, I’ve concentrated on doing digital public relations. I specialise in developing digital communication plans for a range of projects and change programs for almost 20 years. Since then, I have worked with various accounts, including personal, private companies, governmental agencies, and NGOs, to improve their communications and manage their reputation, especially in developing a digital strategy and media engineering.

In the publishing platform, I have deep knowledge in multiple areas of WordPress. That means I can work with almost any aspect, including user experiences, visual design, code development, technical consulting, project management, and more. Correspondingly, as for side activities, from 2008-2013, I represent the WordPress community in Indonesia through WordCamp Indonesia, also implementing my tremendous devotion to Indonesian literature through IDWRITERS project. It was established to ensure the international recognition of and access to Indonesian literature and break down the language barriers that have prevented Indonesian literature from becoming more widespread. I’ve also joined Asymptote Journal as Editor-at-Large in 2017, overseeing the Indonesian region, and co-founded MAJAS, a quarterly-printed magazine in literature and lifestyle, in 2018.

In late 2018, I’ve joined Krona and served as VP of Operations and Managing Partner until now.

Food for thought.

Use data to inform and optimize your content strategy, but make sure you are writing to solve a problem for a human.  https://www.fastcompany.com/90724072/agile-content-development-an-iterative-process

Because every contribution will help us continue to grow, provide a great website, and offer even more features, we invite you to support our work.

From donating to volunteering with us, there are several ways that you can help and get closer to the work we do.



(1) If you are a writer yourself, help us expand the database. Get listed now!

http://idwriters.com/get-listed/ 

(2) Tell us how this site has helped you. Give feedback. Or let us know about your experience with this site. These help us promote the site further, knowing that this site is doing its mission for the people. We welcome any suggestions to improve.

(3) If you are on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, follow us to show support. If you know anyone who would love to know about us (writers, publishers, translators, lovers of literature, even people from the media, etc.), please spread the word. We want as many people as possible to visit us. Or write about us up on your social media timeline is a great idea.

(4) Be a volunteer! Whether you are a literary enthusiast or even clueless–but curious–about Indonesia's literary works, let’s get involved! IDWRITERS relies on volunteers (and interns) to help with a wide variety of tasks. These include: curating content and expanding our ever-growing data bank, collaborating on particular projects and assisting with events, conducting research on diverse topics, handling marketing and communications needs, getting involved in writing assignments such as articles for our literary blog. We welcome new volunteers (anytime) and are very grateful for any support that can be offered.

(5) And if you feel that IDWRITERS has beyond the call of duty to help you, and you would like to say thanks, you can do so below. You’ll never have to pay to visit this site, but if you’d like to buy us a coffee, we’d appreciate that very much. Click to donate, and Xendit will handle the rest.

(6). Or if you think what we do is worthwhile and can spare a few coins for some amount of time without hardship, you can also choose this option to power the site: A Monthly Support.

http://idwriters.com/monthly-support/

(7) You can also support us by picking up our new merch collection. Available soon at our web store!

As the site is self-funded, which relies on the support of others, any donations are received. All proceeds go towards the site’s running, improve new features, and intensify activities or programs that we host. By supporting us, you are helping us to reach people who need our site information. Furthermore, to provide a great website and continue to help us grow and offer even more features. Not to mention, we want to keep this site writers-focused and ad-free, meaning we have to rely on the generosity of you, our visitors, for support.

Finally, (8) we are regularly looking for ways to engage in Indonesian underrepresented writing communities. If you belong to such an underrepresented region and would like to bring its literature to the world’s attention, give us a shout. We’d love to work with you.

Click the designated link or contact support@idwriters.com, especially if you are a trust or foundation interested in supporting us or simply if you are interested in any of the above.
