Connie Willis has been awarded the 2021 Kevin O’Donnell, Jr. Service to SFWA Award, which “recognizes a member of SFWA who best exemplifies the ideal of service to his or her fellow members.” Willis has volunteered for mentorship roles in SFWA as well as the Emergency Medical Fund (EMF) and the Nebula Awards Rules committees. SFWA president Mary Robinette Kowal said:
Connie Willis is one of my favorite people. She’s been a tireless volunteer for SFWA for decades with clear, compassionate service. She makes every task lighter for those around her.
The award will be presented during SFWA’s 56th Annual SFWA Nebula Conference, to be held online June 4-6, 2021.
