Scifaiku has become a passion of mine over the past year. It is a form of poetry that combines science fiction themes with Japanese haiku in a “bastard” form. I took a workshop on how to write this form of poetry at a local science fiction convention and it has had an impact on my writing.
I’d like to encourage science fiction writers to take a look at Scifaiku and wrote a primer about how to go about writing it. I’ve included some of my scifaiku illustrations that you see here on my blog with the article. It is published in the online magazine Lit Central OC, edited by DeAnna Cameron.
A Primer for Writing Scifaiku by Wendy Van Camp
I’m pleased to announce that three of my Scifaiku poems have published in the April 2015 Anniversary issue of Far Horizons Magazine. The magazine is free to readers and can be read online, downloaded as a PDF or printed from Joomag. I hope you’ll stop by and read not only my work, but the other fine stories to be found there.

I am always delighted when someone asks to interview me and it is particularly pleasant when an author of Raymond Bolton’s caliber does so. I hope you’ll stop by his website, The Write Stuff, and not only take a look at my latest interview featuring The Curate’s Brother, but read the other fine interviews and information he has there.
