Japan Writers Conference, October 12–13, Tokyo

Despite the huge typhoon, the 2019 Japan Writers Conference was held at Meiji Gakuin University in Tokyo’s Minato ward on Sunday, October 13. Presenters and attendees from all over Japan and from as far away as Cyprus and Israel gathered to share and learn. Details, presentation abstracts, and program schedule are available on the JWC website. Co-organizers John Gribble and Karen McGee remind us that, as always, this annual event was free and open to all who wished to attend. All look forward to seeing what people shared with the writing community this year.
