We are thrilled to have Marilyn as a winner. Our youngest winner for the writers contest was previously 23 years old. My hat is off to her.

Marilyn Guttridge of Estacada, Oregon 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 Marilyn was the 3rd quarter, second place winner for this year, making it further than some several thousand others, and where her winning story, "The Ghost Wife of Arlington", will also be published in the bestselling Science Fiction anthology series – L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume XXIX.

Marilyn has been writing since she was a child and found out about the contest at school. This is her first entry.

"We are thrilled to have Marilyn as a winner. Our youngest winner for the writers contest was previously 23 years old. My hat is off to her," said Joni Labaqui, contest director.

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), and David Farland (The Runelords Series) 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 11 New York Times bestselling authors.
