OSFest 3’s Poet Guest of Honor

This year the two-fer on our Author Guest of Honor is Carolyn Clink. Carolyn is an accomplished poet as well as the wife of Robert Sawyer. Her poetry has appeared in ANALOG (July 1996 and October 1997), in all five volumes of NORTHERN FRIGHTS (Canada's acclaimed horror anthology series), in the SF anthologies TESSERACTS 4 and 7, in Weird Tales, in the webzine Chiaroscura (where she is also the Assistant Poetry Editor), in Tales of the Unanticipated, Star*Line, and Gaslight, and in the Canadian SF magazines TransVersions and On Spec. Her poetry has also appeared in the anothologies: TESSERACTS 4 and 7, THE STARS AS SEEN FROM THIS PARTICULAR ANGLE OF NIGHT: AN ANTHOLOGY OF SPECULATIVE VERSE, and LAND/SPACE: AN ANTHOLOGY OF PRAIRIE SPECULATIVE FICTION.

Her poetry has been collected in chapbooks: SNAPSHOTS (May, 2007) by believe your own press, and CHANGING PLANES (2000) by Junction Books.

She is a member of the Science Fiction Poetry Association, and the Algonquin Square Table poetry workshop. She studied Astrophysics at the University of Toronto and earned a Bachelor of Technology degree from Toronto's Ryerson Polytechnic University. She is currently working on an Honors Bachelor degree at York University and a Digital Imaging Certificate from Humber College

She had been Poet Guest of Honor at several conventions already, so she will know the ropes as we put her through her paces. Sorry, I guess it was the cowboy hat she's wearing in that photo. Let's all welcome Carolyn Clink to OSFest 3 this July 23-25, 2010. Memberships are still available at:
