SFWA is a professional organization for authors of science fiction, fantasy and related genres. Esteemed past and present members include Isaac Asimov, Anne McCaffrey, Ray Bradbury, and Andre Norton.
SFWA informs, supports, promotes, defends and advocates for its members. We host the prestigious Nebula Awards, assist members in legal disputes with publishers, and administer benevolent funds for authors facing medical or legal expenses. Novice authors benefit from our Information Center and the well-known Writer Beware site.
SFWA members look out for each other and provide assistance, mentorship, and cameraderie. Between online discussion forums, private convention suites, and a host of less formal gatherings, SFWA is a source of information, education, support, and fellowship for its authors.
SFWA Membership is open to authors, artists, editors, and other industry professionals who meet our eligibility requirements.
