Tulis (Too-lis) 2018 is a two-way Australian-Indonesian writing exchange. The project will bring an Indonesian writer to Australia to conduct a four-week residency at Varuna Writers House, a two-week placement at WestWords and participation in the Sydney Writers Festival.

There will be a reciprocal exchange for an Australian writer, who will spend up to five weeks at Komunitas Salihara, before participating in the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival. A short film will capture the exchange.
