How to Order

  1. Add up the cost of all back issues or anthologies you want to order ($5.00 for Ribbons, $6.00 for anthologies).
  2. Add the shipping amount, based on the number of publications you’re ordering and your location (see table above). Remember, shipping is FREE to members in North America if you order by February 28, 2017.
  3. Use the following PayPal button to pay the required amount; rounding up to the nearest whole dollar will help with PayPal charges (make note of the PayPal confirmation/transaction number). Please ignore the fact that it says Donate rather than Make Payment.
  4. Email Kathabela Wilson to list the publications you’re ordering, the total price, and shipping fee (include your PayPal confirmation/transaction number if possible).

To order by postal mail instead of using PayPal, send your order and payment
to the following address. Payment should be by check or international postal money order payable in U.S. dollars to “Tanka Society of America.” For members to qualify for the free shipping offer, your order must be received by February 28, 2017. Even without free shipping, though, all publications are still available at a steeply discounted price. Send cash at your own risk.
