If you are interested in reading and writing tanka, please join us! GUSTS is a member-only journal.

Your submitted tanka will be read and selected by seven selection committee members independently by blind-review each issue in GUSTS. It is fair and the quality of tanka is very high. We invite interested people worldwide to become members of Tanka Canada. The goal of Tanka Canada is to support and encourage excellence in English-language tanka.
