SFWA Now Accepts Self-Published Writers

You read that right! Science-Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America now accepts writers who self-publish novels. I just found this out. Apparently, SFWA made the decision in 2013.

According to their membership requirements, a candidate is eligible if:

A published work of fiction of a minimum of 40,000 words either sold to a small press or self-published for which the author can demonstrate net income of at least $3,000 over the course of a year since January 1, 2013. Income can be in the form of advance, royalties, or some combination thereof …

This is exciting! I thought self-published writers were barred from membership in the various guilds.

We’re legitimate now.
