Ignatius Fay, a retired invertebrate paleontologist, has been writing haiku and related Japanese short-form poetry for twenty years. Today his focus is on haiku, tanka and haibun. His work has appeared in many of the most respected print and online journals devoted to these genres.
In 2008, he published a small book of mostly senryu and haiga entitled Haiga Moments: pens and lens with photographer/friend Ray Belcourt. An anecdotal history of his first 23 years, Points In Between, was published in 2011. His latest collection of poems, entitled Breccia, is a collaboration with fellow haiku poet, Irene Golas, published in October 2012.
He lives in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada.
