HOLLYWOOD, CA (PRWEB) January 10, 2015
Krystal Claxton of Brooklet, Georgia 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 Krystal was the 3rd quarter, 3rd place winner for this year, making it further than some several thousand others, and where her winning story, "Planar Ghosts" will be published in the international bestselling Science Fiction anthology series – L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume XXXI.
Along with eleven other winners from all walks of life from around the globe, Krystal is offered to fly to Los Angeles and 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. Krystal is due to have a baby the day of the schedule event so will be flown out next year, even though she will be published in this current volume. This is the first instance in contest history that a winner could not attend due to expecting a child.
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.
