Milford SF Writers

MILFORD is a gathering of authors who write speculative fiction (in its widest sense). We critique work, discuss ideas and generally connect with other like-minded writers. Invitations are extended to any published SF author - from relative newcomers to those may only dimly recall what rejection slips look like. Milford first timers are particularly welcome.
