Member News: December

It’s a new year already!  We have some exciting announcements from many of our members of the Science Fiction Poetry Association this month as they closed out 2016.

This includes new books, presentations, and other distinctive achievements. We congratulate everyone, and give a special thanks to Michael H. Payne for taking the time to put together the list and all of the links that go with it.

As always, it’s appreciated if you share these with your readers and fellow writers on your blogs, podcasts, etc. in part or in full because it helps us to create a good working record of the creative efforts of our members and to help newer poets find places to find writers they admire, and perhaps to submit work themselves. Keep in great spirits!
