Trota Resigns as SFWA Editor-in-Chief

Michi Trota has stepped down as editor-in-chief of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America’s (SFWA) publications department, which produces The Bulletin, the annual Nebula Showcase AnthologyThe Singularity, and New Releases Newsletter. Trota said,

It has been a pleasure and an honor to serve as SFWA Editor-in-Chief. Being the first person of color to step into this role at SFWA was an opportunity I had never envisioned for myself, and I can’t thank former president Mary Robinette Kowal, current president Jeffe Kennedy, and both recent and current board members for providing the support, resources, and autonomy necessary for me to succeed in this role. Their actions have set a gold standard for what I will look for in future roles with other organizations, and I’m excited to apply what I’ve learned with SFWA to my ever-expanding editorial role at the BIPOC-led news organization Prism.

The 2021 Winter/Spring issue of The Bulletin will be released in August 2021, and its next two issues will be guest edited by Sascha Stronach and Yilin Wang. Nebula Showcase #55 is also scheduled to be published in August. For more information, see the SFWA website.
