Anaea Lay of Madison, Wisconsin 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 Anaea was the first quarter, third place winner for this year, making it further than several thousand others, and where her winning story, "These Walls of Despair," will also be published in the bestselling Science Fiction anthology series – L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume XXX.
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 12 New York Times bestselling authors.
