My Journey to Publishing a Manga in Japan - Part1
I am an italian student currently studying and working in Japan. In the middle of the studying and working I am also trying to publish a manga. I wasn't able to do it yet but I learned so much by trying that I thought I would share what I know with others that have the same dream. And maybe those people might give me advice as well or talk about their own experience with Japanese Publishers.

This is an alternative folk ballad that features beautiful vocals and haunting melodies.
Poetry Basics: BrevityBrevity: n. the quality of expressing much in few words.
When I was in tenth grade, I took my first literature course. It was a six week exploration of poetry. The first poem my teacher showed us was Ezra Pound's In a Station of the Metro:
The apparition of faces in the crowd;
Petals on a wet, black bough.
I, in all of my 16-year-old knowledge of the intricacies of what poetry is, informed my teacher that those two lines were not a poem.
"You don't think so?"
"No. They don't rhyme, they are just one metaphor, and did I mention they're only two lines?"
She sure showed me.
Importance in Poetry
Pound's poem is considered such a great work because he inserts several layers into a single image. Using only 13 words he evokes an entire painting within the reader's mind. You can hear the sounds of the trains, see the fatigue of a mother wrestling with her cranky toddler,
