The Speculative Literature Foundation

Programs

The Speculative Literature Foundation Small Press Co-operative is an organization designed to help small presses within the science fiction, fantasy and horror genres co-operate on projects and exchange useful information.

Membership in the Co-operative will initially give members access to our private discussion boards, where members may exchange information on finances, logistics, advertising, editing, and more. Members will also have the opportunity to join such group ventures as Co-op convention parties, sharing costs and space. We hope that further discussion will also open possibilities for other cost-sharing ventures (as with printers, advertising, convention dealers room tables, etc).

Membership in the SLF Co-op is currently open to any self-identifying small press and its representatives (publishers, editors, copyeditors, etc.) -- both online and print presses are welcome to join. Currently, in lieu of membership fees, all Small Press Co-op members are asked to place a small, 100 x 100 pixel button somewhere on their websites (if applicable).

To apply for membership in the SLF Small Press Co-operative, please send the following to slf-coop@speculativeliterature.org, with the SUBJECT line:

Co-op membership is currently free; Co-op membership does not require that the press also be an institutional member of SLF. SLF reserves the right to charge for membership in future years; any charter members of the Co-op (those who joined in 2004) will receive a 50% discount on sign-up charges, should we decide to charge for membership in future years. You will be notified well in advance of any upcoming charges, so you may decide at that point whether you wish to continue participating.
