Inspired by multiple New York Times best-selling author L. Ron Hubbard, the merit-based Writers of the Future Contest was initiated by him to discover and encourage talented beginning writers of science fiction and fantasy, and thus launch careers.

Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) May 28, 2014

K.C. Norton, 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 a significant step in the attainment of her career as a professional writer after seeing her winning story, "What Moves the Sun and Other Stars" published in the annual anthology—and so beating out thousands of other contestants.

Her latest sale is "Neep" to appear later this year in Galaxy's Edge magazine. The editor of Galaxy's Edge is also a contest judge and a science fiction legend, Mike Resnick.

Now in its 31st year, the Writers of the Future Contest began in 1983 and attracts entries worldwide in science fiction and fantasy. Twelve quarterly winners receive prize monies and, along with selected finalists, are published in an annual anthology, L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future (Galaxy Press).

Inspired by multiple New York Times best-selling author L. Ron Hubbard, the merit-based Writers of the Future Contest was initiated by him to discover and encourage talented beginning writers of science fiction and fantasy, and thus launch careers.

The idea has proved very successful. Hundreds of winners have had successful writing careers following their win and publication in the anthology, and to date has launched the careers of 12 New York Times bestsellers including: Jo Beverley, Tobias S. Buckell, Nancy Farmer, Eric Flint, Karen Joy Fowler, Tim Myers, Patrick Rothfuss, Lisa Smedmen, Dean Wesley Smith, Elizabeth Wein, Sean Williams, and Dave Wolverton aka David Farland.
