SF Minnesota

SF Minnesota is a nonprofit organization dedicated to speculative fiction (science fiction and fantasy, or SF) education. Founded in February 1992 in Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota, it describes itself as "a multicultural, multimedia organization. We are dedicated to improving contacts among groups and individuals interested in speculative fiction, both inside and outside of the traditional SF community. We are committed to making our state's SF community more closely reflect the cultural diversity of Minnesota in the third millennium."
