the first week
Patricia Prime tells us: I had been writing haiku for some time and was in touch with Michael Dylan Welch when he formed the Tanka Society of America. It was the year 2000 and I decided to try my hand at tanka. My first tanka was sent to Michael McClintock for his 'Tanka Cafe' column in the TSA Newsletter and was published by him. Since then I've published tanka in The New Zealand Poetry Society Newsletter, Valley Micropress (NZ), winterSPIN (NZ), Kokako (NZ), paper wasp (AUS), Stylus (AUS), Yellow Moon (AUS), Presence (UK), Moonstone (UK), Raw NerVZ (CAN) and Poets International (INDIA).
