Moonbathing: A Journal of Women's Tanka

Pamela A. Babusci, Editor

Moonbathing Issue 3 is now accepting submissions.

Moonbathing will publish two issues a year: Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer.


For the Premier Issue and yearly, the Editor is sponsoring a Moonbathing tanka contest. Tanka poets may submit one tanka on the subject of “Moonbathing”, whatever that means to you for consideration, in addition to their regular submission. The winner will be featured in issue 3 of  Moonbathing and receive two issues of
Moonbathing as the prize. Be sure to label your tanka "Moonbathing
contest” if sending along with your regular submission.


Moonbathing will feature only women poets. Send a maximum of 10 tanka per submission period. Submission deadlines:

Fall/Winter Issue: In-hand Deadline: Dec. 15th Fall/winter or non- seasonal themes only.

No previously published tanka or simultaneous submissions; no tanka that has been posted on-line, whether on a personal website/blog or on a tanka discussion group; and no publicly workshopped tanka will be considered or accepted.


Send your tanka IN THE BODY OF AN E-MAIL to: Pamela A. Babusci: moongate44(at)gmail(dot)com PLEASE NO ATTACHMENTS. E-mail submissions ONLY.

I hope that all tanka poets who have their work accepted will support Moonbathing by purchasing a copy or a subscription. If Moonbathing is to survive it will need your support and I will be most grateful for it. DONATIONS MOST WELCOME.


Moonbathing does not assume liability for copyright infringement or failure to acknowledge previously published tanka.
