HOLLYWOOD, CA (PRWEB) October 17, 2014
Michael T. Banker of Kew Gardens, New York will be honored at the 31st annual L. Ron Hubbard Achievement awards being held in April 2015 in Los Angeles at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre. The event will celebrate the annual winners in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests, where Michael was the 3rd quarter, 3rd place winner for this year, making it further than some several thousand others, and where his winning story, "Wisteria Melancholy" will be published in the international bestselling Science Fiction anthology series – L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume XXXI.
Michael's win comes just in time as he is about to find himself ineligible due to being published multiple times.
Along with eleven other winners from all walks of life from around the globe, Michael will be flown to Los Angeles and 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), and others, followed by the gala awards ceremony.
The Contest was initiated by L. Ron Hubbard in 1983 shortly after returning to the field of science fiction with his bestseller Battlefield Earth, and to date the contest has launched the careers of 12 New York Times bestselling authors.
