Our heartiest welcome to all tanka lovers around the globe! It is with great pleasure we announce the start of friendly, informal tanka bouts here at Mandy’s Pages called ‘Tanka Time’.
Tanka Time will run during the entire month of March each year. This interactive endeavor is an initiative to foster growth, literary value and motivation to write theme-based individual tanka. We do believe that each of us will embrace this as a venue to pursue our love for tanka. Tanka Time has been inspired by the European Quarterly Kukai that is organized for Haiku.
