This week, the Science Fiction Poetry Association has announced that I’ve been elected as the organization’s new president. Little Laos on the Prairie has asked me to speak a little about that.
Founded in 1978, every year the organization publishes several journals, hold contests and presents 3 major literary awards for writers. I myself was a recipient of the Elgin Award for Book of the Year in 2014. The Science Fiction Poetry Association also provides resources for poets seeking professional publication and networking opportunities.
I thank my predecessors at the SFPA including Bryan D. Dietrich and Sandra J. Lindow who served as the interim president of the organization until the elections could be held. I look forward to the next years ahead and encourage you all to visit us at www.sfpoetry.com or at our facebook page and other social media.
