Atlas Poetica 17 focuses on urban and French tanka. Our urban special feature (available on the website) received an extraordinary number of submissions, many of which spilled over to contribute to the current issue. In addition, we are pleased to have information about French tanka written by Janick Belleau and translated by Maxianne Berger. The history of French tanka in French and English expands our understanding of tanka around the world.
