Mike Allen, former Science Fiction Poetry Association (SFPA) President, took time out from MCing the The Rhysling Award Poetry Slan to hold a Speculative Poetry Workshop that drew a number of folks hoping to find their inner poet, including myself (Ern) and about fifteen other folks. The workshop ended with excerpts in SciFiku that generated enough good pieces that I asked the authors to send them along for publication with a few words from Mike on the form and workshop.

From official release/information:

Friday 4:00 PM, RI: Workshop (60 min.)

Speculative Poetry Workshop. Mike Allen with participation by M. M. Buckner, Ernest Lilley, _et al_

Speculative poetry is also known by the equally puzzling monikers "science fiction poetry" and "fantastic poetry." What is it? Who publishes it? How do you write it and why would you want to? Come prepared to write.
