Happy International Speculative Poetry Day!

Today marks the second international recognition of speculative poetry as an essential genre. Last year the Governor of Minnesota presented the Science Fiction and Fantasy Poetry Association with a proclamation declaring November 3rd the official day to celebrate and promote awareness.

In 2017 I wasn’t even aware of what “speculative poetry” even meant and was surprised to find that was my natural genre. (You can read my enlightenment post from last year here.) That’s exactly why the folks at SPFA made this day… and it’s working.

So, Happy ISPD!
