The Planets – Finalist for Elgin Award

The Planets is a 2021 Finalist for the Elgin Award for Best Speculative Poetry Book of the Year.

The Planets: a scifaiku poetry collection is a literary journey through our solar system featuring poems inspired by the nine planets. All the scifaiku and astropoetry is meant to inspire you to seek out and learn more about the history of human’s exploration and the physical characteristics of the these fascinating worlds.

The Elgin voting season is about to close. If you are a voting member of the SFPA, I hope you’ll consider The Planets when you are making your final considerations for the Elgin.

Currently, Wendy Van Camp is composing a new astropoetry scifaiku book called Time and Space. She hopes to have it published in Spring of 2022. Look for it and for The Planets on Amazon.

The Planets: a scifaiku poetry collection is nominated for the 2020 Elgin Award

It is with great pleasure that I announce that my first poetry collection has been nominated for an Elgin Award! This is an award given by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Poetry Association for the best poetry book of the previous two years.  It is an honor to be nominated this year.

Winning an Elgin has been a dream of mine for as long as I’ve been a poet. If you are a member of SFPA, there is a PDF of my book available to you to view on site. I hope you’ll consider “The Planets” as you make your determination of which books to vote for in 2020.

The book is available at all major online book retailers including AMAZON
