Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) July 22, 2014
Samantha Murray of Perth, Australia will be honored at the 31st annual L. Ron Hubbard Achievement awards being held in April 2015 in Los Angeles. The event will celebrate the annual winners in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests, where Samantha was the 2nd quarter, second place winner for this year, making it further than some several thousand others, and where her winning story, "Half Past," will also be published in the bestselling Science Fiction anthology series – L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume XXXI.
Alongside Samantha will be eleven other winners from all walks of life, flown in from all corners of the globe. They will be treated to a week-long workshop taught by the contest blue ribbon panel of judges including Tim Powers "On Stranger Tides" and Dave Wolverton "On My Way to Paradise," followed by the gala awards ceremony.
The Contests were initiated by L. Ron Hubbard in 1983 shortly after returning to the field of science fiction with his bestseller Battlefield Earth. To date the contest has launched the careers of 12 New York Times bestselling authors.
