~ 2016 Anthology: We are pleased to announce plans for TSA’s 2016 members’ anthology to be published in the fall. The book will be co-edited by Jenny Ward Angyal and Susan Constable. Ken Slaughter will be in charge of production.
Submissions for the anthology will be open July 15–August 15, 2016 for current (2016) members of the Tanka Society of America or those who join within the submission period.
If you’re not a current member, you are invited to join or renew today at: http://www.tankasocietyofamerica.org/how-to-join
Submission Guidelines will be posted June 15. Please begin to think about sending 5-10 tanka for consideration when the submission window opens. Beginning this year, one copy of the anthology will be sent to each TSA member as a membership benefit. Additional copies will be available for purchase on Lulu.com ($10 plus postage).
