Tanka Society of America Contest!!

Last year we received over 450 entries for the 2016 Sanford Goldstein International Tanka Contest! There are two changes this year that you should be aware of.

First, the submission window (April 1 – May 31) is a month earlier. Please make a note of it.

Second, we are announcing that the judges for this year’s contest are Janet Lynn Davis and James Chessing.

This latter announcement is a change from previous years, and is based on the growing number of societies in Japan, Europe, and the U.S., that name judges before competitions open.

Please read our submission guidelines at http://www.tankasocietyofamerica.org/tsa-contest/how-to-enter-the-tsa-international-tanka-contest.

We look forward to receiving your entries!

New Tanka Prose Contest

Dear Tanka Society of America members,
 
Thanks to all who participated in this year’s tanka contest! Now, you might want to start thinking about your submissions for the 2015 members’ anthology (deadline, September 30) as well as our brand-new contest:
TSA “Special Event” Contest: October 2015
 
The Tanka Society of America is pleased to announce a tanka prose contest that will take place this fall. This fifteenth-anniversary special event is open to members and nonmembers alike. There is no entry fee, and the first-place winner will receive a 2016 TSA membership. Please see the submission guidelines at the TSA website for details. The guidelines also are included in the spring/summer issue of Ribbons, which is currently being mailed to members.
 
We have quite a bit going on this year. Refer to our calendar on the website to help you keep track of the various activities (including the next Ribbons deadline). 
Happy writing!
