Publications Sale

We’re Having a Publications Sale!

The following back issues of Ribbons and our Tanka Society of America membership anthologies are available for a temporarily reduced price from our secretary, Kathabela Wilson. You don’t need to be a member to order, but we welcome new members (here’s How to Join). The number of copies available, listed after each publication, is accurate as of February 2017. For issues where a small number of copies is listed as being available, please contact Kathabela Wilson before ordering to see if they’re still available. Please also ask if you’re looking for a particular essay, review, or author.

Sale Prices

All back issues of Ribbons are $5.00 each (half price), plus shipping, and the anthologies (see list at the end) are $6.00 each (40 percent off), plus shipping. Shipping charges are for any combination of publications. All prices are in U.S. funds.

Shipping Charges

Please include shipping charges as follows, based on the number of copies you order and the applicable shipping rate. We realize that shipping to Canada is very expensive, but these are the current rates as of 2017 (and they are higher overseas). In the United States, the Media Mail option takes up to ten days.

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).

  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.” Send cash at your own risk.
