SFWA Market Qualification Request

Please understand that qualifying a market may take a substantial length of time due to the need to gather data, some of which may have to come from the publisher.

NOTE: Authors may apply for SFWA membership using qualifying sales that clearly meet our criteria, regardless of whether the markets in question have explicitly gone through the market qualification process. Our membership committee will require documentation of professional payment for your work.

When a market becomes qualified it will be placed on the list of qualifying markets for public reference.

Please be sure you are not querying about a market already on the qualifying list or the list of other venues.

  • If you are with the market, please confirm the following necessary conditions for this market by checking each box (the membership committee will verify all information, but if all boxes are not checked, this market is not eligible for qualification; if you are not with the market, please answer what you know, and we'll try to find out the rest, but be aware that the market will not qualify if we can't determine that they meet all the criteria):
