Member News-January, 2018

The 40th Anniversary Celebrations of the SFPA have begun and our members have already had excellent news to report from this past January at the Science Fiction and Fantasy Poetry Association! Michael H. Payne once again collected your news, and has our abiding thanks for his diligence in coordinating with all of our global members.  A special thanks also goes to Alicia Cole who will be providing art for each month of our member news posts this year. Congratulations, and we look forward to more news from each of you soon!
