This section provides a brief list of links and descriptions of useful organizations for writers. It is not intended to be an exhaustive list. Each organization has its own requirements for membership. Writer’s Block does not benefit in any way by your enrollment or participation. It does not bear liability for any misrepresentation by a listed organization.
American Society of Journalists and Authors
The ASJA claims to be the nation's leading organization of independent nonfiction writers. Their membership exceeds 1,000, and is made-up of freelance writers of magazine articles, trade books and other forms of nonfiction writing. Membership requirements do include being a professional freelance writer.
International Horror Guild
Though horror is, of course, a genre quite distinct from science fiction and fantasy, there is some crossover and certainly many people who appreciate one, more often than not appreciate the other. The International Horror Guild does have membership requirements, albeit simple ones, and the membership boasts mostly "normal" types (if horror fiction lovers can be called such) with an exteme appreciation for the dark and sinister.
Writers on the Net
Writers on the Net features email-based lectures and classes, and charges a nominal fee for participation.
Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Inc.
The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Inc., is a non-profit organization founded in 1965. Its purpose is to aid fantasy and sci-fi writers in a variety of ways, and they maintain a useful "how-to" articles section and also present some skilled artwork.
