HOLLYWOOD, CA (PRWEB) February 22, 2012
Harry Lang from Prospect Park, Pennsylvania 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 annual winners in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests, where William was the 1st quarter, third place winner for this year, making it further than some several thousand others, 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.
Writing has long been part of a broad resume of artistic interests for Harry; decades of devoted effort have produced a truly impressive collection of rejections. It wasn't until his first acceptance by the online publication Bewildering Stories that Harry realized he might have a side career in writing. He works as a technical designer for an aerospace corporation, and now has his first professional sale as a writer through the contest.
Alongside Harry will be 11 other winners from all walks of life, flown in from all corners of the globe. They will be treated to a week long workshop taught by the contest blue ribbon panel of judges including Tim Powers (On Stranger Tides), followed by the gala awards ceremony.
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.
