Miscellaneous Information:

Jenny Ward AngyalJenny Ward Angyal grew up in rural Connecticut and now lives with her husband on a small organic farm in central North Carolina. She has two sons and three grandchildren. She composed her first poem at the age of five and has written tanka since 2008. Her tanka (and occasionally haiku) have appeared widely in journals and anthologies, and her tanka collection, moonlight on water (Skylark Publishing), appeared in 2016. She co-edited the Tanka Society of America’s 2016 Members’ Anthology, Ripples in the Sand, and served for over five years as Reviews and Features Editor for Skylark: A Tanka Journal. When not writing poetry, she has spent time studying and writing about biology, as well as teaching nonverbal children how to communicate—both pursuits that have doubtless influenced her engagement with tanka.
