The “Fleeting Words” Tanka Competition

Fleeting Words is our newest UHTS Contest, and we hope that it will encourage others to learn to write the classic form of tanka. Any subject is acceptable and syllable count is not an issue, however a tanka rhythm of short, long, short, long, long that distinguishes it from a short poem, is important. Please consider sending multiple tanka so we have plenty to choose from.

You are encouraged to submit in your native language in addition to your English submission.

Please see the General Submission Guidelines for further information.

Submission Period and Deadline: May 1-August 15 of each year.
