The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America announced increased support for AboutSF for the coming year, continuing a partnership that began in 2006. The SFWA board of directors voted unanimously Sept. 23 to fund AboutSF with a $5,000 one-year grant. SFWA has previously supported AboutSF with $3,000 annually. “The Lessons Library, which AboutSF has put together, is a tremendous resource and is just a fraction of the work they do to bring SF to a broader audience,” said SFWA Secretary Mary Robinette Kowal. “I am delighted that SFWA is able to partner with them on this outreach.”
