HOLLYWOOD, CA (PRWEB) June 24, 2014
A survey of the second quarter entrants who attained Honorable Mention in the international writers contest hailed as "the American Idol for writers" showed that the talent is spread out across the US but also around the world. "We had a very international quarter," contest Director Joni Labaqui stated. "Our youngest Honorable Mention was a 15-year-old female from Arizona and our oldest was a 79-year-old male from Tulsa, Oklahoma. Writers in their 30's came out on top as the most prolific this time around as well. We had awardees from 35 states and 13 countries as well. I find these statistics ebb and flow in the course of a year."
Contestants who rank Honorable Mention have the chance to submit that story again. They can keep submitting any story until they do win. Other categories include semi-finalist, finalist and winner every quarter.
One of the most known and respected vehicles for supporting new and fledgling authors is this world-acclaimed, free-to-enter global contest called L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future, now in its 31st year. Created by international 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.
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 twelve New York Times bestselling authors.
