These are the writers and illustrators to look for. They are the future.
L. Ron Hubbard created the Writers of the Future Contest in 1983 to provide a means for aspiring writers of speculative fiction to get that much-needed break. Due to the success of the writing Contest, the companion Illustrators of the Future Contest was created in 1988.
The intensive mentoring process has proven very successful. 12 winners have become New York Times bestselling authors and winners' works have sold over 50 million copies.
The Writers of the Future Award is the genre’s most prestigious of its kind and has now become the largest, most successful and demonstrably most influential vehicle for budding creative talent in the world of speculative fiction. Since inception, the Writers & Illustrators of the Future Contests have awarded over one million cumulatively in cash prizes and royalties to their winners.
