This is to let people know that there is an SCBWI Japan Blueboard for everyone with an interest in kidlit/YAlit related to Japan. SCBWI Japan is an active region with monthly events, mostly in the Tokyo and Yokohama area. Check the events calendar at http://japan.scbwi.org
to see what we're up to next! We are also active online for those who can't make it to our events, and hopefully we'll soon have Creative Exchanges happening in other regions of Japan. We also have a Translation Group for those with an interested in Japanese to English translation of children's lit.
