Tamara K. Walker

Writer in Colorado

Visit my website

I'm a writer of various forms, primarily including:

Flash fiction

Short stories and "sudden fiction"

Experimental poetry (free verse, concrete, etc.)

Traditional minimalist poetry forms (tanka, sijo, 'ku, etc.)

Most of my published fiction falls under the broad genre/style banners of irrealism, surrealism, slipstream, and perhaps at times even bizarro.

I also write a great deal of poetry derived from East Asian forms in English--particularly sijo and tanka--in both speculative and literary modes.
