2017 Anthology Submission Guidelines

The Tanka Society of America is pleased to announce the publication of its 2017 annual members’ anthology in the fall of 2017. The book will be edited by Margaret Dornaus and David Terelinck. Ken Slaughter will do the book’s design and production. We’re very excited about this anthology, and each TSA member will once again receive a free copy as a membership benefit (you can also purchase additional copies).
