Our special issue "Writing Japan" encompasses writing from and/or about Japan, broadly imagined. We hope to feature work by Japanese writers and non-Japanese writers writing in relation to Japan, as well as work that challenges fixed ideas about Japanese identity and the Japanese experience. We are looking for idiosyncratic and intelligent work that explores the various meanings of "Writing Japan."
