About Scifantor

Are you an author of science fiction, fantasy, or horror? Maybe you’d like to be, but don’t know where to start? Perhaps you’ve stalled somewhere in your creative process.

Here at Scifantor, we’re a bunch of friendly folk who enjoy sharing and critiquing our work. We also like to inspire, support, and encourage others. We want to hear your thoughts, questions, and concerns.

Why not come along to a local meeting? If there aren’t any, why not start a local chapter? You’re also very welcome to join us online, contributing microfiction or participating in our discussion forum.
