9781592128488: L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future - The First 25 Years

Twenty-five years ago, L. Ron Hubbard created and endowed the Writers of the Future Contest “as a means for new and budding writers to have a chance for their creative efforts to be seen and acknowledged.”  Since that time, the Contest has been a phenomenal success, inspiring a generation of new writers who have now become some of the most recognized and influential voices in the fields of science fiction and fantasy.

 

For the first time in history, this full color coffee table style art book, presents a retrospective of a quarter century of the Contest containing over 1,100 photographs.  You will find the historical highlights, the famed week-long intensive workshops, the guest speakers and presenters (who have included astronauts, industry leaders, futurists, filmmakers, actors, recording artists, and other visionaries).  Each year, the awards ceremony is a celebration of creativity and the arts.

About the Author:

Kevin J. Anderson is the #1 international bestselling author of nearly a hundred books. He is best known for his Dune novels co-authored with Brian Herbert, his Star Wars and X-files novels and his Saga of Seven Suns series. he has been a Writers of the Future judge since 1996.

From Publishers Weekly:

Winning the Writers of the Future contest may be less prestigious than nabbing a Hugo or Nebula, but to the hundreds of authors who have won or placed, it provided an undeniable boost to their budding careers. Now, a quarter-century in, the annual contest gets a glossy, coffee table chronicle. Every aspect of the contest is covered, including a workshop that began with only 12 invited writers (who had to pay their own way), and essays by and profiles of dozens of past judges, including sci-fi and fantasy luminaries Orson Scott Card, Frank Herbert, Frederik Pohl, and Gene Wolfe. As this is also another product of the Hubbard empire, it's not above moments of hyperbole: the author, we're told, "all but defined what it means to be a successful writer." The brunt of the volume is taken up with an index of winners and finalists from '85 to '09, featuring sidebars wherein past winners provide context, encouragement, or gratitude for Mr. Hubbard's generosity; though winning was surely a boon, not all victors take the earnest tract. Carl Frederick, for instance, begins with "On being a WOTF Finalist and Achieving Victory over Toenail Fungus."
