Privy journal of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. One of the few publications – perhaps the only one – in the sf world restricted to a designated readership, SFWA Forum is circulated only to "active" and "associate" SFWA members (the terms "active" and "associate" being defined by the rules of that guild). Where the SFWA Bulletin, which is the official public journal of SFWA, maintains a strict public-relations approach to material, SFWA Forum allows (reportedly) unfettered expressions of opinion – which are (reportedly) not always exhilarating. SFWA Forum went on hiatus in 2008 and has only recently resumed a regular schedule. It now consists primarily of reports to the membership from officers and committee chairs with a few usually non-controversial letters from members. [JC]
