2014 Writers and Illustrators of the Future Awards

On April 13, the L. Ron Hubbard Achievement Awards were presented in Los Angeles. Since 1983, the Writers of the Future contest has provided aspiring short story writers with the opportunity to see their work published. The artistic side of this contest was introduced in 1988. The judges, established sf writers and illustrators, led a week-long workshop for the winners, all of whom will see their stories and artwork featured in Volume 30 of the Writers of the Future annual anthology.
