The Art of Bogdan Stetensko

Bogdan is from Kiev, Ukraine and was another first quarter winner to be published in WOTF 23. The title of the first illustration is : "The Fly".

The second illustration is called, "The Last Musician".


The third illustration is entitled, "Rysalochka".

I read in a blog yesterday posted by Damon Kaswell that he heard from a friend that he was on TV in Eugene. I called up to Eugene and spoke to the new director of KEZI-TV and sure enough, the ran the press release I had sent out announcing the new winners as a news item.

In addition to the piece that ran on Damon, Kim Jollow will be interviewed on a local radio station later this month as a winner of the Writers Contest and Amelia Mammoliti will have a feature article coming out on her in the next week or so in a local paper as a winner in the Illustrator Contest.

Roughly two press releases a week are going out on Writers of the Future volume 22 and the upcoming volume 23. So I expect to hear a lot more stories similar to Damon's story. So be sure to watch for articles, radio or TV airings about you as a winner in the writers and illustrators contest.
WHEN YOU FIND THAT YOU HAVE HAD ANY MEDIA, BE SURE TO LET ME KNOW. THE BEST WAY IS TO JUST EMAIL ME AT PR@GALAXYPRESS.COM


Also, Writers of the Future Volume 22 was #1 on Amazon.com for 2 days this week as a science fiction anthology! This has happened virtually every week the past 2 months.

    Hi Friends,

    I have known about the contest for a long time, but am really timid and intimidated at the thought of competing with such fine professional authors.

    I may just send off my story someday and the fact that the contest runs throughout the year is very reassuring.

    All the Best for the new book. In INDIA it is hard to find this title - the only visible Sc-Fi anthology being "The Mammoth Book of" SERIES.

    The art is beautiful and I wish your website also help artists sell original artwork in the near 'future'.


    Love and Regards,
    Ujjwal Dey
    Bomb-aye, INDIA.

    Good luck.
