General information

“A culture is as rich and capable of surviving as it has imaginative artists.” — L. Ron Hubbard. Thus began a talent search for the best creative imaginations in the world—the storytellers, the artists, the entertainers, the visionaries. Two contests that changed the future of science fiction and fantasy: L. Ron Hubbard presents Writers of the Future and Illustrators of the Future. Each year, twelve writers and twelve illustrators are selected by a panel of the biggest-name authors and the biggest-name artists in the field. They will be the stars of tomorrow.

Our Story

"A culture is as rich and as capable of surviving as it has imaginative artists. The artist is looked upon to start things. The artist injects the spirit of life into a culture. And through his creative endeavors, the writer works continually to give tomorrow a new form. "In these modern times, there are many communication lines for works of art. Because a few works of art can be shown so easilly to so many, there may even be fewer artists. The competition is very keen and even dagger sharp. "It is with this in mind that I initiated a means for new and budding writers to have a chance for their creative efforts to be seen and acknowledged." --L. Ron Hubbard Introduction L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future, Volume 1

I got my hands on an early review copy of the upcoming Writers of the Future. I have read the first two stories and am about to start the third. Can. Not. Put. The. Book. Down! A perfect antidote to all of the craziness flying around at the moment! Here is the pre-order so you can reserve your copy:
Working with dozens of writing educators, I've put together a wonderful opportunity for the next few days. The link is in the first comment below. Please share this with your friends so we can get writers the insights and inspiration they need to succeed.
One of the beautiful and most unexpected things about this contest are sudden the friendships I have made with some of the other winners. I've already met Jake Marley and Sean and can hardly wait to meet the others next week. And even though Walt will be unable to attend I am sure we will all be thinking of him and sending him messages throughout the workshop. So, in that way he will be with us. Again, this aspect of the contest was unexpected but profoundly important.
Fellow WOTF winners past and present, if any of you are attending FOGcon in March please send me a message. I am hoping to arrange a meetup there. It would be a good chance for past winners to tell us newbies what to expect and how to prepare for the workshop, award ceremony, etc.
Thank you, so thrilled!
