News from Around the World

Winners from the Writers and Illustrator Contests along with Contest judges are showing up more and more in media and events around the world. The L. Ron Hubbard Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests are becoming more and more established at the international level as that much needed career launching pad for many of today's top professionals in science fiction and fantasy as well as being the top short story competition in the world. Just read on!

I will post some of the recent media in one of my next posts.

NEW PODCAST IS NOW LIVE!

Before I forget, have a listen to the podcost which you can find on the right sidebar of this blog. Then let me know what you think and what you would like to hear. I had one request today for readings from some of the stories. This podcast was taken from one of the seminars at the Writers of the Future workshop a few years back with Kevin J. Anderson, Rebecca Moesta, Tim Powers, KD Wentworth and Sean Williams talking about getting published.


NEWS FROM COORDINATING JUDGE, KD WENTWORTH


Hi, John! Tim is interviewed in the current issue of Locus and has his picture on the cover. I have stories out in the May issue of FASF and the latest issue of Weird Tales, #343.

Best, KDW


NEWS FROM SHAUN TAN, ILOF WINNER IN VOLUME 8

Shaun Tan, ILOF winner in volume 8, has gotten a special mention by the Bologna book fair for his book that he wrote and drew. NOTE: This is the largest Young Adults and Children book fair in the world and where the Harry Potter boom started. It is a big deal to get such mention in Bologna. Bologna is as big or bigger than the Book Expo America.

Hi, I wanted to let you know about my new book THEY HUNGER. The book's a vampire thriller set in the remote Southern Appalachian wilderness.

NEWS FROM JIM HINES (WOTF 15)

I'll definitely be sending you something soon. I just sold two more books to DAW, and I figured I'd send you a write-up to coincide with the release of my next book in a few weeks...

Thanks again!
