THE WRITING OF ERIC MARGOLIS
Nagoya-based writer and translator working on Japanese art and literature, climate change, and social issues.
These are just a few of my recent articles on Japanese culture and society. I've written for The New York Times, Vox, Slate, The Japan Times, The New Republic, Foreign Policy, Culture Trip, Metropolis Magazine, the Jewish Forward, and The Times of Israel on topics ranging from travel destinations to complex social issues. I've translated light novels, memoirs, essays, and art gallery text for One Peace Books, Seven Seas, and Sayusha. And I've developed content strategies for NewsRx, an AI journalism company, Voyagin, a Japanese travel platform, Fulford Enterprises, and Futpong, a backyard soccer-tennis game. Feel free to reach out and I can provide you with a more tailored selection of samples.
