Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) February 21, 2012
Corry L. Lee from Redmond, Washington will be honored at the 28th Annual L. Ron Hubbard Achievement awards being held on Sunday, 15 April, 2012 at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre. The event will celebrate the twelve annual winners in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests, where Corry was the 2nd quarter, third place winner for this year. Her winning story will also be published in the bestselling Science Fiction/Fantasy anthology series – L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume XXVIII.
Corry studied physics and applied mathematics in college while sneaking in writing time between classes and research. She went on to complete a PhD in experimental particle physics at Harvard University. Since completing her doctorate in 2011, Corry has been writing full time while contemplating her next move. Until then, she channels her scientific background into her writing.
Corry and eleven other winners - including a housewife from Maryland, a aerospace designer from Pennsylvania, and a rocket scientist from London, England will be treated to a week long workshop taught by the contest blue ribbon panel of judges lead by Tim Powers (On Stranger Tides), followed by the gala awards ceremony at the end of the week.
The Contests were initiated by L. Ron Hubbard in 1983 shortly after returning to the field of science fiction with his bestseller Battlefield Earth, and to date the contest has launched the careers of 8 New York Times bestselling authors.
