Tanka Monday 2019 Registration

For Tanka Monday 2019, registration is FREE to everyone, but donations are welcome at the event or beforehand.

We want to know how many people to expect and need to make your name badge and registration packet, so please register as early as you can.

The attendee list provided in your registration packet will include your name and city/country (not your full address). We’ll also include your email address unless, when you register, you request that it be omitted.

Tanka Handouts

It’s common at tanka meetings like Tanka Monday to prepare a trifold or other handout showcasing your tanka to share or trade with others. We anticipate about 50 attendees, if that helps you decide how many copies to make (we will know more definite numbers closer to the event date).

Haiku North America Conference

If you are interested in attending the Haiku North America conference from August 7 to 11, 2019, immediately prior to Tanka Monday (tanka events will be from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm on August 12, plus readings the evening before), please visit Haiku North America for more information. Our gratitude to HNA for helping to make Tanka Monday happen!
