At last! SFWA has released a public statement asking the membership to put forth opinions on admitting self-publishers.
It’s… It’s a start.
Updating membership guidelines to admit self-publishers is the obvious choice. I might be a new SFWA member, and might be a teensy tiny speck in the self-publishing world, but I’ve a goodly deal of life experience (including, among other things, establishing a non-profit business and rewriting the bylaws of another). I quite understand the work involved, the implications, and so forth. It’s still the obvious step.
