There will be two print issues of Skylark per year:
Submissions for the summer issue will be read through December and January and will close on February 1st each year.
Submissions for the winter issue will be read through June and July and will close on August 1st each year.
No subscription is required. The journal will be published via Createspace. When the winter issue is published, the summer issue will be made available to read online. Check back here in the coming months for the details of publication and release date. Kindly submit up to ten original, previously unpublished tanka &/or one sequence*, tanka prose, tan renga, articles etc. with the subject heading “Skylark tanka submission” to the Editor, Claire Everett: email@example.com
At the end of your submission, please include your full name and country of residence.
All rights revert to authors upon publication. Your tanka must not be under consideration elsewhere, or submitted to any contest.
In addition to your regular submission, you are also invited to submit one tanka for the “Skylark’s Nest” prompt (see below). Unfortunately, we are not able to reproduce colour images in Skylark, but poets wishing to submit tanka-art may do so; coinciding with the publication of each issue, a selection of the best will be added to a haiga gallery on the website.
Alternatively, black and white ‘tankart’ may be considered for the print journal. Please send up to five pieces of black and white ‘tankart’ to our Tankart Editor, Sandi Pray: firstname.lastname@example.org
The website skylarktanka.weebly.com will be updated regularly. Back issues will be available as PDF files as each new issue is published. The “Skylark’s Nest” winners and runners up will also be archived.
Jenny Ward Angyal is the Skylark Reviews and Features Editor. If you would like your book to be considered for review please contact email@example.com
Similarly, submit all articles for consideration to the address above.
Any queries should be addressed to the Editor: firstname.lastname@example.org
* If you would like to submit more than one sequence (for instance, if you have collaborated with different poets) this is acceptable, although I request that you send no more than 5 individual/collaborative sequences.
In addition to your regular submission, you are invited to submit ONE tanka for the “Skylark’s Nest” prompt. Detailshere:
We look forward to your submissions!
NB: Following notification of acceptance, please refrain from sharing your work online prior to the issue going to print. If you do so, your tanka will be withdrawn from the print issue.
