How do you become one of the 12 winners to be published in the annual anthology? Writers of the Future judges and past winners discuss the Contest, tips on story prompts, and short fiction. A review of the previous 35 years found that out of 472 past writer winners and published finalists, 336 have gone on with their writing career, publishing at least one story. And 192 continue to write and be published—that is, over 40% who are still realizing their dreams as a writer. The Contest was created by L. Ron Hubbard in 1984 to provide a means for the aspiring writers to have their work seen and acknowledged. Come to this panel and learn how it can help you.
