2014 Anthology Submission Guidelines

The Tanka Society of America is pleased to announce the publication of a members’ anthology in the fall of 2014. The book will be edited by M. Kei, a widely known tanka poet and publisher of Keibooks (including the Take Five anthologies and the tanka journal Atlas Poetica). For the first time (this year only), we will be offering current TSA members a complimentary copy of the anthology.

Submission Guidelines

Submit: Send five to ten unpublished tanka. TSA members who send at least five submissions will be guaranteed the selection of at least one tanka for the anthology. Socially published poems (Twitter, Facebook, author blogs) are eligible for submission as long as they are indicated as such.

Eligibility: Open to poets who are current (2014) members of the Tanka Society of America or those who join within the submission period. If you’re not a current member, please join or renew today!

Submission period: February 15–April 30, 2014.
