The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) has allocated $100,000 to assist its members with expenses due to COVID-19. “This receipt-based grant will allow members to apply for up to $1,000 of emergency funding to cover the cost of essential needs, such as housing and food, due to lost income from the pandemic.” They are also implementing a six-month deadline extension for all membership dues, effective immediately.
For more information, or to apply for an emergency grant, see the SFWA website.

We rely on reader donations to keep the magazine and site going, and would like to keep the site paywall free, but WE NEED YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT to continue quality coverage of the science fiction and fantasy field.
