Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) November 12, 2011
William Ledbetter from Prosper, Texas will be honored at the 28th Annual L. Ron Hubbard Achievement awards being held in April 2012 in Hollywood, California.
The event will celebrate the annual winners in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests, where William was the 2nd quarter, first place winner for this year, making it further than some several thousand others who entered the international competition, and where his winning story will also be published in the bestselling Science Fiction anthology series – L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume XXVIII. William is a mechanical engineer and has been entering the contest on and off since the year 2000.
Alongside William will be winners from as far away as Australia, Thailand and England. They will also be treated to a week long workshop taught by the contest blue ribbon panel of judges.
The intensive mentoring process has proven very successful. Past winners of the Writing and Illustrating Contests have had over 500 novels, 1,400 short stories and tens of thousands of illustrations published, selling an impressive 31,000,000 books.
The Contests were initiated by L. Ron Hubbard in 1983 shortly after returning to the field of science fiction with his bestseller Battlefield Earth.
