Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) February 09, 2012
Marie Croke from Hollywood, Maryland will be honored in "West Coast Hollywood" at the 28th Annual L. Ron Hubbard Achievement awards being held on Sunday, 15 April, 2012 at the famed Ebell Theater.
The event will celebrate the annual winners in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests, where Marie was the 1st quarter, first place winner for this year, making it further than some several thousand others who entered the international competition, and where her winning story will also be published in the bestselling Science Fiction anthology series – L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume XXVIII.
Alongside Marie will be winners flown in from as far away as England, Australia, Sweden, Canada and across the USA. 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 700 novels, 3,500 short stories and tens of thousands of illustrations published.
The Contests were initiated by L. Ron Hubbard in 1983 shortly after returning to the field of science fiction with his bestseller Battlefield Earth.
