Egrets Reading

New SFPA Web Director

I'm pleased to announce that Scott Virtes is going to be the new Science Fiction Poetry Association Web Director starting in July.

Besides playing a pirate in "Master and Commander," the Russell Crowe movie a couple years ago, Scott has been doing programming, website and database work for over 10 years. He has done projects for Corel (CD-ROM game), Maytag (data analysis), Honeywell (data support for the Space Station), and websites ranging from small personal sites to massive music download centers and online registration for a local university. He does websites and eBay by day; by night he's a poet and writer with some 400 credits, going back to those strange days before there was an internet.

Our current Web Director Karen Romanko is still going to maintain the Paying Markets List for us, even as she takes a very well-deserved rest from the day-to-day duties of running our website.
