One of the most known and respected vehicles for supporting new and fledgling authors is the world-acclaimed, free-to-enter global contest called L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future, now in its 29th year. Created by best-selling author L. Ron Hubbard, the merit-based Writers of the Future Contest was initiated to discover and encourage talented beginning writers of science fiction and fantasy. Quarterly winners of the Contest appear in the best-selling annual anthology, receive cash prizes, and attend an all-expenses paid gala awards ceremony and writing workshop.
A survey of this recent quarter's Finalists, Semi-Finalists and Honorable Mentions in the standings are more diverse than the normal quarter. Award winners this quarter are from 36 states in the US, and 11 countries including: USA, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, Ireland, Nepal, Singapore, New Zealand, South Africa, The Netherlands and Bulgaria. The manuscript must be written in English."Those numbers are counting only those who placed in one of the award categories above and does not include all entrants," said Joni Labaqui, the contest director.
"Since going on-line several years ago, we have seen great expansion, with entrants sending in stories from 153 different countries in the course of our 29 year history."
The Writers of the Future Contest is that break new writers can use to launch the career they’ve dreamed of. In fact, the contest has launched the careers of eleven New York Times bestselling authors.
If you’ve ever thought of becoming an author, no matter where you live, you have a golden opportunity to make it happen.
