Judith Moffett (born 1942) is an American science fiction writer. She is also a poet and an academic.

She first wrote poetry and works about poets, like her 1984 book about James Merrill. She still writes for organizations like the Academy of American Poets. [http://www.poets.org/page.php/prmID/158] She did not write science fiction until 1986, but gained almost immediate attention by winning the first Theodore Sturgeon Award in 1987. Her first novel, "Pennterra" in 1987, further enhanced her reputation. It is noted both for its treatment of alien sexuality and as an example of Quakers in science fiction. [http://www.adherents.com/lit/sf_quaker.html] In the following year, 1988, she won the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer in Science Fiction. In 1989 her novella "Tiny Tango" also received award nominations.
