SFPA Call for Jurors
The Science Fiction and Fantasy Poetry Association seeks jurors to assist with their annual Rhysling Awards. Exact details of revamped awards process are still being finalized. Jurors should expect to read between 100-200 short (11-49 line) and/or long (50+ line) poems to narrow down a list of nominees to a list of finalists that will be printed in the annual Rhysling Anthology. Winners are selected by a vote among SFPA members.
Please reach out to the SFPA Executives to indicate your interest:
