Brian Trent Wins 2nd in International L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Contest; Sells Short Story
Brian Trent of Prospect, Connecticut found out in January of 2013 that he had won second place in the 4th quarter of the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future contest. And since then he has been promoting the fact that he won. Thanks to Brian's networking skills and his win in the contest, he has now sold a short story to Galaxy's Edge Magazine. Coming to the attention of buying editors is one of the benefits for the winners of the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future contest. The word gets out, and publishers know they have a talented writer on their hands.
Trent's short story was selected by multiple award winning science fiction legend Mike Resnick.
Brian's winning story in the contest, "War Hero," was published in the best selling anthology - L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume XXIX, which was released in June of this year.
Trent has been writing for years and has worked as a professional journalist. His nonfiction writings have additionally graced the cover of The Humanist magazine. The Writers of the Future contest win was his second professional sale in fiction, his first being to COSMOS. He recently completed the second novel in a "future history" series, and when not writing, he works in film.
The Contests were initiated by L. Ron Hubbard in 1984 shortly after returning to the field of science fiction with his bestseller Battlefield Earth. And to date the contest has launched the careers of 12 New York Times bestselling authors.
