Welcome to Word Craft: Prose & Poetry! I’m glad you’re here. Are you ready to craft syllabic poetry? Join the #TankaTuesday poetry challenges HERE.

Word Craft: Prose & Poetry is an uplifting community where poets can learn the basics of writing Japanese and American syllabic poetry by sharing their own poetic inspiration within a weekly poetry challenge called Tanka Tuesday.

Participants submit their poetry written in one of these forms: haiku, senryu, haiga, tanka, gogyohka, haibun, tanka prose, cinquain, and its variations, Etheree, nonet, shadorma, Badger’s Hexastich, Abhanga, Diatelle, or the forms found on the poetscollective.org. Poets receive positive feedback from peers who inspire each other to stretch their creativity.

Participants and readers return each week to celebrate the weekly poetry stars and to buy books from the Tanka Tuesday Book Store.
