About

My name is Taylor Drew and I am a Canadian living in Tokyo.. I am an English teacher to elementary school aged students and JA - EN editor and proofreader. I also write reviews and other literary content at Books and Bao and my book blog at A Basket of Words. I also write culture and language articles for Tokyo Weekender.

I have been working on and off in English education and the writing and localization industry since I arrived in Japan in 2015. I am fluent in three languages (English, French, and Japanese) and am passionate about language and culture. I also moderate a book club that focuses on Japanese books in translation on Goodreads called The Way of the Japanese Book.
