SFWA Announces Self-Publishing Guidelines

The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) has announced the opening of membership to self-published authors. With 1/3 the membership voting, more than 85% of the voting members chose to include self-published members. SFWA will apply the same income level to self-published authors, but allow authors to use a combination of advances and income earned over a twelve month period for qualification. The new qualification requirements, which will also make it easier for authors published by small and independent presses to join, will go into effect on March 1.
