Atlas Poetica Expands its Mission

Atlas Poetica : A Journal of World Tanka is expanding its mission and changing our subtitle to reflect that. As of ATPO 20 (2015) we are Atlas Poetica : A Journal of World Tanka . We maintain our interest in tanka poetry of place, but we will also publish other work with strong imagery and a lyric presentation. We strive to publish not only good tanka and sedoka, but innovative, fresh, and experimental tanka and sedoka poetry and their variants.

In addition, we are changing our publishing schedule to an organic serial in which each issue will publish as it fills. We guarantee that we will publish at least three times a year, but hope to publish more often. To accomplish our new schedule, we will always open to submissions of poetry, non-fiction and book reviews, as well as announcements and book notes on a space available basis.

The new format will be simpler in order to permit a ready conversion to ebook. Past issues will continue to be archived on the website on a space available basis.
