2015 Anthology Submission Guidelines

The Tanka Society of America is pleased to announce the publication of a members’ anthology in the fall of 2015. The book will be edited by Claire Everett, a widely known tanka poet and publisher of the tanka journal Skylark. David Rice, editor of Ribbons, will do the book’s design and production. We’re very excited about this anthology, which will complete a year of events celebrating TSA’s fifteenth anniversary.
