Announcement: TSA Contest Renamed to Honor Tanka Pioneer

In celebration of our fifteenth anniversary today, April 14, 2015, the Tanka Society of America is pleased to announce that we have renamed our annual tanka contest after Sanford Goldstein. Sanford is the foremost pioneer of English-language tanka, a scholar and translator of tanka, and a widely respected tanka poet. The contest’s new name is the Sanford Goldstein International Tanka Contest. 

This year's contest submission window is May 1 through June 30, 2015. We welcome submissions from everyone, not only in support of tanka, but also in honor of Sanford. For more information about the contest, please visit the TSA website. 

– Margaret Chula, TSA President
