After some web mishaps and lost emails I was able to get in touch with Jane Jewell, the Executive Director of the Science Fiction Writers Association, and she was extremely helpful in getting me set up. So, as of now I’m officially a dues-paying member. I haven’t got my login info set up yet so I’m not entirely sure what secrets lie within the ‘member’s only’ section, but from what I can tell the organization appears to be some dark cabal which uses ancient infernal machines to assert control over the minds of men (women, too).
From their website:
SFWA is a non-profit organization of professional writers of science fiction, fantasy, and related genres. Esteemed past and present members include Isaac Asimov, Anne McCaffrey, Ray Bradbury, and Andre Norton.
Founded in 1965 by Damon Knight, the organization now includes over 1500 speculative authors, artists, editors, and allied professionals. SFWA presents the prestigious Nebula Awards, assists members in legal disputes with publishers, and hosts the well-known Writer Beware web site.
Honestly, I’m just excited to have a chance to hobnob a little with those more experienced than me, although I hope I get a scepter, preferably one with a perpetually spinning planet on the end.
