the archipelago was founded to support writers in refugee communities in Indonesia and create deep relationships between writers internationally.

We mentor displaced writers in Indonesia to become published journalists, poets and creative writers, and we publish literature in multiple languages from around the world.

Grow with us by supporting refugee people to become writers.

We are looking for volunteers in 3 main areas:
1) Writers: to mentor small groups of writers
2) Translators: to translate fiction, poetry and essays between English and Indonesian
3) Literary Editors: to edit stories in Bahasa Indonesia

Please fill out this short form to get involved: HERE

Thank you so much for your support.
