To encourage collaboration between Indonesian publishers and their international publishing partners, the Indonesian National Book Committee is very excited to launch the 1st edition of Jakarta Fellowship Program. The objective is to offer mutual benefits and opportunities for Indonesian publishers as hosts and their international publishing partners in sharing experiences and working development plans for future ventures. This intensive residency program is to be presented along with the Litbeat Literaction Festival – also organized by the Committee – and will last for a full week, the first days of September 2019, in Jakarta.


A number of selected Indonesian publishers will host foreign publishers whom they have already acquainted as their international business relations.


The initiative aims to foster better and stronger relationship between Indonesian and international publishers given ample time to meet one on one, discuss and work a mutual development plan for future cooperation. The organizer will take care of the finance obligations related to the cost of travel, accommodation and the daily expenses of the international publishing partners during the residency period.
