While originally conceived as falling within the discourse of the speculative, Blossomry holds a very liberal view as to what the speculative encompasses. We find that Sonya Taaffe's assessment of the strengths of the speculative to accurately reflect the ethos behind Blossomry: "Speculative poetry, defined however handwavily as a mood or a mode rather than content or context, is deeply tied to boundaries: pushing, blurring, coming into being between. I value the liminal, the polyphonal, the ambiguous and the marginalized; it is not a new thing to transform a story in the telling, but I love that we can now see re-transformations, illuminating and overturning assumptions about the ways in which we receive and interpret all manner of familiar tropes." In light of this, we do not seek to define nor enforce any particular conception of the speculative, instead allowing each poet themself to decide what the speculative means in the context of their work.
