Atlas Poetica


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.

Day’s End – Ray Rasmussen

“In submitting, please consider that I’ve attempted to keep the website focused on age-related experiences directly affecting the writer and not on the writer’s friends or family and particularly not on the issue of loss or infirmities of a loved one. My plan is to create a similar website with a focus on the experience of “loss.”

If you submit a poem or haibun and I find the subject suitable to aims of the present site, I’ll reply with several image possibilities in mind and ask for your reactions. I won’t post an image with your poem or haibun unless you feel that it’s suitable.

I have a preference for previously published work. If you submit such, please also send the previous publication details: journal, volume, number, date.” You must visit the website in order to submit:
