2017 SFPA Speculative Poetry News Recap

As you can imagine, when you have so much going on in the world of speculative poetry, it can be a little hard to keep track of everyone’s news after a while. With December arrived, we can now do the recap of all of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Poetry Association member news as people reported to Michael H. Payne. He has my fullest and sincere appreciation for what is such a tremendous task, given how many of us are spread out over 19+ countries.

In addition to our files on Google Docs, we’ve been keeping them up at our blog SPECPO, and we appreciate pingbacks and linking to those posts because it helps get all of your wonderful accomplishments further attention from the various search engines. As the saying goes: We all do better when we all do better. If there are any corrections you’d like made, as always, let us know and we’ll get that addressed promptly.
