We want to grow and expand our content, and having more people involved would be ideal. Here are the sorts of things we’re looking for:
Culture articles. What are some of the best/weirdest experiences you’ve had in Akita? Any interesting personal stories, great restaurants, “Best of Akita” recommendations, festival info, strange conbini finds, or daytrip ideas you’re itching to share? Write an article. Check out the categories posted on the site for more inspiration, or if you have new ideas of your own, send them our way.
Arts reviews. Books, films, music, TV. Japanese, English or otherwise.
Creative writing and art. We encourage creative submissions that are inspired by a wide range of experiences, themes, places, stories, people and settings. This can include “Japan” but is definitely not limited to that paradigm. So slam us some poetry, paint a picture, tell a story, or draw a comic – we’re curious about whatever it is you’ve got to share. If you live behind a lens, you can also take a look at our current photo challenge theme for ideas.
Send your stuff, anytime, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
