Galaxy's Edge Magazine has just purchased and will feature in the near future L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future contest winner Liz Colter's story, "The Ties That Bind, The Chains That Break." Liz was a winner of the contest and was published in L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 30 with her short story, "The Clouds in Her Eyes."
Mike Resnick, editor of Galaxy's Edge is in a great position as a judge for the Writers of the Future contest. Mike does get to read many of the winning stories and select those authors he feels have a potential for a solid career. Liz is the third winner from Volume 30 that Resnick has published this year.
Throughout the Contests' 30-year history, 348 writers and 276 illustrators have been recognized as winners, according to Labaqui. They’ve gone on to publish over 700 novels and 3,500 short stories, as well as hundreds of thousands of published illustrations and sfx art for 31 major motion pictures. Former Writers of the Future Contest winners listed on the New York Times best-seller’s list include: Jo Beverley, Nancy Farmer, Karen Joy Fowler, Sean Williams, Dave Wolverton aka David Farland, Patrick Rothfuss, Lisa Smedman, Tim Myers, Tobias S. Buckell, Eric Flint, Dean Wesley Smith and Elizabeth Wein.
“The Writers of the Future Contest is the most effective means for aspiring writers to make their break in the publishing industry, an industry renown for being closed to the newcomer,” Labaqui said. “That’s because our winners are judged by professional writers from thousands of entries worldwide.”
Well-known contest judges include multiple Nebula and Hugo Award winners and finalists such as Kevin J. Anderson, Larry Niven, Nnedi Okorafor, Jerry Pournelle, Tim Powers, Robert J. Sawyer, and Mike Resnick, to name a few.
Inspired by best-selling author L. Ron Hubbard, the merit-based Writers of the Future Contest was initiated 30 years ago to discover and encourage talented beginning writers of science fiction and fantasy and its mission of launching careers.
