Day 1: Writers of the Future XXV winners arrive!
The Hotel Roosevelt in Hollywood is where the Writers and Illustrators of the Future winners are staying during the week. It is a historical site as this is where the first Acadamy Awards, also known as the Oscars, were awarded.
Several of the winners are being welcomed by Joni Labaqui (Writers of the Future Contest Director) at the hotel. From left to right: Krista Hoeppner Leahy, Gra Linnaea, Schon Zwakman, Joni Labaqui, Emery Huang.
