Hey everyone just a heads up to let you know our gals have done it again. Maybe some of you would be interested in participating with the American Tanka Society, they are a very friendly group! And, there are many submission calls where you can enter and NOT be a member. The Winter Issue does include all your favorite gals and is a very nice introduction to the group and how they work. The issue is only $10.

Lulu will have them on sale soon to see all the ladies fine work you want

Volume 10 Number 1 Winter 2014

I couldn't find a pic of it this picture is of a different volume.
