Do not choose full-time independent artists (artists = people who ACTUALLY CREATE and PRODUCE something, e.g. writers, musicians, filmmakers, illustrators, designers, photographers, curators, etc.) for "indie rates." There is no such thing as "indie rates" as opposed to professional rates. The way there is no such thing as indie rice, indie water, indie petrol, or indie electricity. Tak ada sewa rumah indie, talian telefon indie, insurans kesihatan indie -- TAK ADA. Independent artists need to eat and drink, move around and pay bills just like you do, and we don't get "indie rates" for these. "Independent" is in how we work and how we are not tied to any ideology or establishment. That is all. Our final product/service is professional, according to the agreed concept and requirement. Hence ours are professional rates too, just like any other living, working humans. You heard that right- we work! And this is our full-time job! SURPRIIIIIIIIIISE <3

1) Penyertaan penulisan harus dalam Bahasa Malaysia ATAU Bahasa Melayu. Bahasa Melayu bermaksud, penulis dari Singapura, Brunei, dan Indonesia juga dialu-alukan.
2) Contoh karya bukan manuskrip. Maka itu diminta 5 buah puisi/prosa sahaja. Boleh hantar lebih tapi saya sebagai penyunting sejujurnya akan baca lima yang pertama sahaja. Jika terpilih barulah kita mohon manuskrip penuh iaitu 15 buah puisi/prosa, minimum.

Growing up listening to Malay ballads, Johan Nawawi was one of my favourite composers. Some of Nora's songs written by him that I really enjoyed were Naluri (Hadirlah Kekasih) and Hanya Satu. To read about his sudden passing this morning is saddening. Needless to mention, a lost to the Malaysian music industry. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un.
Tiada besi yang mampu melurus bahu dan tiada perisai yang mampu mendukung hati dari runtuh berderai apabila tuan doktor berkata: Kami sudah sehabis cuba. Masa untuk mengesahkan pemergiannya.
Two years ago, three months after Ibu (my dear aunt) passed away, I lost Papa. Papa and Mama are my beloved uncle and aunt who took care of me when I was little. Mama and Ibu are siblings, so in a period of 100 days, Mama had lost both her sister and her husband. Till this very day I cannot really talk about Papa. I can listen to other people talk about him but I myself can't. My knees will weaken and my eyes will well up, and it would feel like breaking down all over again outside the ICU in 2015. Wani tak kuat, Pa.
