Past Anthologies

The Tanka Society of America has published occasional anthologies of member poems since 2002, and since 2014 these anthologies have been annual. The following is a list of all member anthologies, together with ordering information. If you would be interested in editing, designing, and publishing a future anthology, please contact any TSA officer, as these anthologies can happen only when members volunteer to help make them happen.
