Hi I am Ayu Meutia Azevy. I am a Bachelor of Arts in Professional Communication, a digital copywriter and an author. I am based in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Currently, I work full-time as a senior copywriter in a multinational digital agency in Jakarta. Before I was a digital copywriter, I worked as an account executive in a design house/advertising agency on 2012 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia then I moved back home to work as an ATL copywriter.
I have a total 7 years of working experience with 5 years in digital advertising & marketing. I was based in Mumbai, India for a brief time.
Poetry & Creative Writing Work
I am a writer and a community organizer. On 2015, together with 5 founders, I co-founded "UNMASKED POETRY OPEN MIC", a poetry open mic in Jakarta. We have been working with different art houses and communities such as Galeri Indonesia Kaya, @america, British Council Jakarta, ASEAN Literary Festival and Ubud Writers & Readers Festival. This year (2019), UNMASKED will be 4 years of age.
I competed in national poetry slam and international poetry slam. I was the 2nd runner up of UWRF 2017 Poetry Slam, held at BetelNut. On November 2017, I was one of the Indonesia representatives for The Straits Slam, where I battled against Malaysian and Singaporean poets. The slam was held in Johor Bahru, Malaysia as a part of Iskarnival 2017.
My poetry book "Tigress" was published independently under Letterplatters flagship and launched as a part of Book Launching Program at Ubud Writers and Readers Festival 2016.
On December 2018, Tigress was re-published by Gramedia Pustaka Utama and available nationwide in every Gramedia Bookstore.
By the way... If not writing, you can find me in Barre, Muay Thai or Ride classes or around literary festivals and open mics near you!
