Membership Tiers

The SLF is dedicated to promoting diverse voices and literary quality in speculative fiction. We accomplish this goal through your support in encouraging promising new writers, assisting established writers, facilitating the work of quality magazines and small presses in the genre, and developing a greater public appreciation of speculative fiction.

The SLF serves the speculative literature community through support from people like you. We’re a 501(c)3, and all donations are tax-deductible in the U.S.  For gifts over $1000, gifts of stock, or to explore funding a grant, please contact our Finance Director, Margaret Frey, and she’ll be happy to assist you. We encourage you to apply for matching funds from your employer if possible!

Thank you for your support!
