On Joining SFWA

A few days ago I received an e-mail from Star Trek writer Kevin Lauderdale. Kevin and I have shared covers—he has a story in Constellations—and I’ve been a long-time fan of his work, going back to a review website he ran about ten years ago called “The Kevindex.”

He’d joined SFWA. Science-Fiction Writers of America.

Jim Johnson, another Star Trek writer, mentioned on his blog a few days ago that he, too, was now a member of SFWA.

Some people already thinK I’m a member. I’m not.

So, this started me thinking.

Now that I’m eligible, should I join?

So I’m throwing it out to the audience.

What are the benefits to joining SFWA? Are there drawbacks?

Advice, people.
