Science Fiction Poetry Association

The Science Fiction Poetry Association was established in 1978 by Suzette Haden Elgin to bring together poets and readers interested in science fiction poetry. The organization publishes the journal Star*Line and the online magazine Eye To The Telescope, and provides market listings and industry news to members. Eye To The Telescope magazine, with its rotating editorship, broadens the scope of the organization's literary footprint. It also administers the Rhysling Award and bestows the Dwarf Stars Award. The two awards involve the publication of annual anthologies of nominated works. The SFPA awards Grand Master status to poets who have been actively publishing genre poetry of high caliber for at least 20 years. The president of the SFPA is David C. Kopaska-Merkel.
