Our winners have gone on to publish hundreds of books throughout the years, and not all of them in science fiction and fantasy.
Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) May 23, 2013
Scott T. Barnes is a Southern California native who takes pride in his local heritage. Scott has published "A Story of California One Hundred Years Ago - Ranch San Felipe". He has now released the illustrated children's book in hardback. But his first published story came about when he entered and won the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future contest in 2012, which published "Insect Sculptor" in the annual writing career launcher, L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future anthology.
The contest, now in it's 30th year, created by best-selling author L. Ron Hubbard, is a merit-based competition initiated to discover and encourage talented beginning writers of science fiction and fantasy and help launch their careers. Winners are treated to not only publication of their work in the annual L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future, but are also given a week-long workshop on the life of a writer and a gala awards ceremony.
"Our winners have gone on to publish hundreds of books throughout the years, and not all of them in science fiction and fantasy," said contest Director Joni Labaqui. "Not all authors write in one genre only, in fact most don't. So we are thrilled to see our winners go on to write in any genre, in any field."
The contest has launched the careers of eleven New York Times bestselling authors in it's 30 year history.
