The Society for the Advancement of Speculative Storytelling (SASS)

Received good news yesterday that the new writers' group is formally incorporated.

From a letter dated 7/31/2012 from the Office of the Secretary of State of Texas...

"It has been our pleasure to file the certificate of formation and issue the enclosed certificate of filing evidencing the existence of the newly created nonprofit corporation..."
And, as of 7/30/2012...
"The undersigned, as Secretary of State of Texas, hereby certifies that a Certificate of Formation for the above named Domestic Nonprofit Corporation (The Society for the Advancement of Speculative Storytelling, Inc., File Number: 801633398) has been received in this office and has been found to conform to the applicable provisions of law.
Accordingly, the undersigned, as Secretary of State, and by virtue of the authority vested in the secretary by law, hereby issues this certificate evidencing filing effective on the date shown below (7/30/2012)."
So as of 7/30/2012, SASS officially exists...

We will need to get a mailing address and start taking actual membership applications.

In case you are not familiar with SASS, here's the statement of purpose from the incorporation application:

The Society for the Advancement of Speculative Storytelling, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging and mentoring aspiring and new writers of speculative fiction. In so doing, its activities shall include, but not be limited to, keeping its members informed of issues within the field, providing avenues of constructive critique and collegial discussion for its members, and encouraging interest and appreciation for all aspects of speculative fiction in multiple media.
