Science Fiction Poetry Association Memberships make great gifts
This is that time of year where I also mention that SFPA memberships make a great holiday gift.
At a minimum, members get to network with fellow poets, 4 great issues of Star*Line including new poems and reviews, the Rhysling Anthology of some of the best speculative poems of the previous year, the Dwarf Star Anthology, and many other privileges, including review copies of many of the candidates for the Elgin Award nominees for Book and Chapbook of the Year.
And renewing at this time of year makes it easy to remember the next year. A big thanks to everyone who's been getting theirs in already!
The Science Fiction Poetry Association was founded in 1978 to bring together poets and readers interested in science-fiction poetry. SFPA's founder, Suzette Haden Elgin, shared her thoughts on sf poetry in the aptly titled "About Science Fiction Poetry." It's worth a read.
