(ENG) Eliza Vitri Handayani is a writer and creator of art events. Her novel From Now On Everything Will Be Different came out in 2015 and got her invited to Melbourne Writers Festival, Frankfurt Book Fair, and other international and Indonesian events.

At the launches in Oslo and Jakarta, Eliza wore a dress that she had designed and made herself from the novel's proofs. The novel’s launch at Ubud Writers & Readers Festival was cancelled due to police warnings, and Eliza protested by wearing to the festival T-shirts printed with excerpts from her novel.

Eliza is also the founder and director of InterSastra, a boundary-breaking platform for literary and artistic exploration and exchange. In 2018 Eliza initiated and directed House of the Unsilenced, which matches artists, writers, and sexual abuse survivors to tell their stories through art. She is passionate about rebellious women, freedom of expression, and innovative storytelling. Find links to her works at elizavitri.com, and greet her on Twitter or Instagram @elizavitri.
