Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) May 07, 2014

Leena Likitalo, a winner in this year’s Writers of the Future Contest and published in L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 30, has taken another significant next step in the attainment of her career as a professional writer. After seeing her winning story, "Giants at the End of the World" published in the annual anthology—and so beating out several thousand other contestant - Likitalo sold her next story, and is the first in the group of winners to announce their next sale.

Her latest sale is "Zombies at Work" to appear later this year in Galaxy's Edge magazine and is about an unconventional workplace romance.

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 (http://www.writersofthefuture.com) 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.
