Writers & Illustrators of the Future are international contests, with thousands of entries from over 175 countries around the world. Salt Lake City has the distinct honor of having more winners of the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Contest than any other city in the world.
To help celebrate 35 years of helping aspiring writers and artists, Galaxy Press has contributed 700 copies of L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future 35 to the Heinlein Blood Drive as an incentive for Dragon Con.
Science fiction—earlier termed fantastic fiction and later speculative fiction for its probing multi-sided search of the world of “What If?”—has anticipated major developments in science and technology for decades.
We attended the Salt Lake City Comic Con which took place at the Salt Palace in downtown Salt Lake City with over 100,000 attendees over the 3-day event. One of the best parts of attending these conventions is seeing amazing friends—judges from Writers and Illustrators of the Future, contest winners and the amazing fans!
The judging results are in! Here are the 3rd Quarter 2017 Writers of the Future Contest winners. Congratulations to you all!
Another great day at the Atlanta Dragon Con! It all started with the Dragon Con Parade and our entry featuring Battlefield Earth.

So, the news is out: I’m writing a Star Wars book as part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi project. Working with the team at Lucasfilm Publishing has been such a pleasure — they’re the best.
I have talked about some of the most frequent problems that I see when judging for the Writers of the Future Contest, and today I’m going to tackle one of the biggest: the problem with “told” stories.
