Fayetteville, Arkansas (PRWEB) January 29, 2014
Marina J. Lostetter of Fayetteville, a winner in last year’s Writers of the Future Contest and published in L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 29, has taken another significant next step in the attainment of her career as a professional writer. After seeing her winning story, "Master Belladino's Mask" published in the annual anthology—and so beating out several thousand other contestants—Lostetter continues with a string of sales.
Her most recent publication is "Elsa's Spheres" appearing in this months InterGalactic Medicine Show. IGMS is edited by Orson Scott Card and Edmund R. Schubert. Marina appears in this issue along side Writers of the future contest winner from 2011, Van Aaron Hughes.
Marina has also sold "The Prayer Ladder" to Galaxy's Edge: Issue Four, now appearing in the just released issue of the magazine and has already sold another story that will appear in the same publication later this year. The editor of Galaxy's Edge is also a contest judge and a science fiction legend, Mike Resnick.
The Writers of the Future writing contest was initiated by L. Ron Hubbard in 1983 to provide a means for aspiring writers to get that much-needed break. Due to the success of the Writing Contest, the companion Illustrators of the Future Contest was created in 1988.
The intensive mentoring process has proven very successful. Past winners of the Writing Contest have published over 750 novels, 3,500 short stories and winners of the Illustrating Contest have had their art published in more than 500 books and magazines, with 4,500 illustrations, 350 comics and over 1.3 million art prints.
