Terry Madden of Oak View, California will be honored at the 30th Annual L. Ron Hubbard Achievement awards being held in April 2014 in Los Angeles. The event will celebrate the annual winners in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests, where Terry was the 1st quarter, first place winner for this year, making it further than some several thousand others, and where her winning story will also be published in the bestselling Science Fiction anthology series – L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume XXX. As Terry is a 1st place winner, she will now compete with the other 1st place winners (four in all) for the grand prize of $5,000.00.
Writing has been a goal of Terry's for years but she is also a teacher of chemistry and astronomy. Alongside Terry will be eleven other winners from all walks of life, 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.
