The Washington Science Fiction Association, founded in 1947, is the oldest science fiction group in the greater Washington, DC, area. Our interests cover a wide range, including science fiction, science fact, fantasy, and many related fields.

Each year we run Capclave, our regional science fiction convention, and we have helped sponsor worldwide conventions such as the World Science Fiction Convention and the World Fantasy Convention. In addition, the club administers the WSFA Small Press Award, an annual award for short stories published by a small press in science fiction, fantasy, horror, or related fiction genres. WSFA Press publishes anthologies and collections of stories and the WSFA Journal prints minutes of meetings and writings by members and friends.

Non-members are encouraged to attend our regular meetings, held on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month. These gatherings include a brief business meeting, followed by light refreshments and conversation. Occasionally, we also hold other events, such as parties and trips to see movies. Our regular meetings are held in members' homes in the greater DC area. For more information and directions, visit our home on the web at
