Maia Aruna is a writer coming out of her shell. Her first novelette, Buku Harian Karenina (Karenina’s Diaries) has just been published last month. She is currently writing its prequel (in her native language, Indonesian) and a poetry book (in English), hopefully both will be out by the end of the year. She manages three poetry accounts on instagram: @maiaruna_. @lecriturefeminine_, and @puisitidur_ (for poems in Indonesian).
