Shannon Peavey of Kirkland, Washington 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 Shannon was the 4th quarter, 3rd place winner for this year, making it further than some several thousand others, and where her winning story, "Scavengers," will also be published in the bestselling Science Fiction anthology series – L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume XXIX.
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 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 11 New York Times bestselling authors.
