Welcome, one and all, to the first of few tanka challenges for the year ‘Tanka Time 2015’ at Mandy’s Pages. We have been trying to decide on the theme for this year’s friendly interactive tanka experience… and it hasn’t been all that easy, considering every word we’d pick has potential for a brilliant tanka, and yet, hasn’t been impressive either.
After a search for words through a random word-pick site, we decided upon ‘Companion’. How can you depict your idea of companion as a noun or a verb without actually referring to it?
‘Guidelines for Submission’ as well as the ‘Judging Procedure’ are outlined below.
Please be aware that Mandy’s Pages is a family-friendly site. Therefore, kindly avoid submitting content that is graphic or explicit in content.
Thank you for your support and for participating.
