SFWA Market Report For August

Welcome to the August edition of the SFWA Market Report.* Please note: Inclusion of any market in the report below does not indicate an official endorsement by SFWA.

For regular readers of the SFWA Market Report, note a few changes have gone into effect this month:

  1. Last month’s new format of “Currently Open” carries on, but instead of recently opened markets being marked with a * they have a parenthetical statement “(Recently Opened)”.
  2. The Temporarily Closed and Permanently Closed sections have been combined into a single section: “Recently Closed”, where permanent closures are marked with a parenthetical statement “(Permanent)”.
