Thank you for your interest in contributing to the Kaigai.jp project. This project would not be possible without the contributions of the many people who have been kind enough to share their writing, their knowledge, and their personal experiences with us. Potential contributors are invited to express their interest by following these steps:
1. Read the Contributor FAQ
The Contributor FAQ contains common questions and useful information for potential contributors. If you are not sure what this project is all about or what role you can play, the FAQ should answer your questions. If you have questions that are not addressed by the FAQ, please contact us and we will be happy to answer your questions directly.
2. Review the Contributor Agreement
The Contributor Agreement is a legal document that describes the terms under which contributors work with Kaigai.jp. The agreement must be signed by both parties before any work can begin. Please feel free to contact us to talk about any questions or concerns related to the agreement. You can also read our Contributor Agreement FAQ which addresses many common issues.
3. Let us know you are interested
Contact us and tell us a little about yourself and how you would like to contribute to the project. We appreciate your time and interest and will respond to all inquiries. Please be sure to include a valid email address or phone number when you contact us, so we will be able to reach you.
What Happens Next?
You will be contacted to arrange a conversation with our founder to further discuss how you would like to contribute. In addition to learning more about you and how you may be able to contribute, the conversation will give us a chance to tell you more about the project and how your work will fit in. This will also be your chance to ask any questions that were not answered by the FAQs, so please take a good look at the site so you’ll have an idea of what this project is all about.
If you are in the Washington, DC area, and time is available, this could be an in person meeting. In person meetings are typically done at a coffee shop near a Metro stop and typically last from 30 to 90 minutes. Otherwise, a phone call will be arranged.
