A survey of the first quarter submissions of contest entrants are more diverse than the normal quarter. Entrants this quarter are from 48 states in the US. Overall entrants were from 38 different countries and that is an average number globally. However the number of states represented normally averages in the 30 range. "This proves that the contest is growing," contest Director Joni Labaqui stated. "We happen to be one of the biggest contests of our kind in the world. Since going on-line several years ago, we have seen great expansion, with entrants sending in stories from 160 different countries in the course of our 30 year history."
One of the most known and respected vehicles for supporting new and fledgling authors is this world-acclaimed, free-to-enter global contest called L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future, now in its 30th year. Created by international best-selling author L. Ron Hubbard, the merit-based Writers of the Future Contest was initiated to discover and encourage talented beginning writers of science fiction and fantasy. Quarterly winners of the Contest appear in the best-selling annual anthology, receive cash prizes, and attend an all-expenses paid gala awards ceremony and writing workshop.
The Writers of the Future Contest is that break new writers can use to launch the career they’ve dreamed of. In fact, the contest has launched the careers of twelve New York Times bestselling authors.
If you’ve ever thought of becoming an author, no matter where you live, you have a golden opportunity to make it happen.
