Help Wanted

We’re still looking for new writers! If you’ve been thinking about it and you’re on the fence, I urge you to take the plunge and join the team! All Aomori JETs are welcome!

You can write on basically any topic you’d like. If you need inspiration, take a look at the “columns” sidebar on the right and browse for a bit. You could even resurrect or reinvent a discontinued columns if you chose. A brand new topic is equally welcome!

It’s also worth noting that we’re interested in giving JETs a platform for things other than writing, so please send us an email at if you have anything you want to share.
