Marina J. Lostetter to Appear in 'Women Destroy Science Fiction' Special Edition
Marina J. Lostetter of Fayetteville, a winner in the 2013 Writers of the Future Contest and published in L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 29, has taken another step in her career. After seeing her winning story, "Master Belladino's Mask," published in the annual anthology, Lostetter continued with a string of sales including Galaxy's Edge magazine and InterGalactic Medicine Show magazine. She will now appear in Lightspeed's special issue, "Women Destroy Science Fiction."
The special publication will feature women's short stories and flash fiction that are science fiction only; no fantasy stories were accepted.
Now in its 31st year, the Writers of the Future Contest began in 1983 and attracts entries worldwide in science fiction and fantasy. Twelve quarterly winners receive prize monies and, along with selected finalists, are published in an annual anthology, L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future(Galaxy Press). The book is available wherever books are sold.
Inspired by multiple New York Times best-selling author L. Ron Hubbard, the merit-based Writers of the Future Contest was initiated by him to discover and encourage talented beginning writers of science fiction and fantasy, and thus launch careers.
