Membership in the Tanka Society of America is open to anyone anywhere. TSA membership is annual, starting January 1 and expiring on December 31. Membership includes three issues of the TSA journal, Ribbons, and eligibility to submit poems to the “Tanka Café” column and to our members’ anthology. Those joining late in the year will receive all that year’s back issues of Ribbons. You can also order additional copies of Ribbons and anthologies by emailing Kathabela Wilson at poetsonsite@gmail.com, or from the Lulu.com website at regular prices (search for “Tanka Society of America”). To become a member or to renew your membership, please supply the following information and send it with your payment to the secretary’s address (below), or print out this page, fill it out (PRINT NEATLY, PLEASE), and mail it in. You may also click the PayPal button below to pay online, but please also email the secretary with the information requested. By joining, all members consent to receiving email notifications for society announcements unless the member does not have or supply an email address.
