SDWEG member Rick Lakin was recently informed he has been accepted as a member in the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA). SFWA membership is open to authors, artists and other industry professionals, including graphic novelists.
SFWA, like the Authors Guild and Romance Writers of America, is a selective writers organization that requires proven success in the genre before an author can join it. These organizations expect a commitment from their members and provide benefits accordingly. If you are interested in learning what the requirements are for joining these organizations, check out their websites.
