Eric Cline of Bowie, Maryland will be honored at the 29th Annual L. Ron Hubbard Achievement awards being held on Sunday, 14 April, 2013 at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles. The event will celebrate the annual winners in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests, where Eric was the 2nd quarter, second place winner for this year, making it further than some several thousand others, and where his winning story, "Gonna Reach Out and Grab Ya", will also be published in the bestselling Science Fiction anthology series – L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume XXIX.
Eric has been writing and being published in small online and hard copy publications and is a former college level English teacher and has been entering the contest for a few years.
Eleven other winners from all walks of life will be 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), 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, and to date the contest has launched the careers of 8 New York Times bestselling authors.
