Megan O'Keefe Wins the International L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future Contest 4th Quarter
Megan O'Keefe of Concord, California will be honored at the 30th Annual L. Ron Hubbard Achievement awards being held on the 13th of April 2014 in Los Angeles at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre. The event will celebrate the annual winners in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests, where Megan was the 4th quarter, first place winner for this year, making it further than some several thousand others, and where her winning story will also be published in the bestselling Science Fiction anthology series - L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume XXX. As Megan is a 1st place winner, she will now compete with the other 1st place winners (four in all) for the grand prize of $5,000.00.
Megan owns her own soap and perfume company and has been writing on and off for years. In the past year and a half she has been putting more attention on her writing. She found out about the contest on a popular pod-cast called "Writing Excuses." This is her second time entering the contest.
Alongside Megan will be eleven other winners form all walks of life, flown in from all corners of the globe. They will be treated to a week-long workshop taught by the contest blue ribbon panel of judges including Tom Powers (On Stranger Tides), followed by the gala awards ceremony.
The Contests were initiated by L. Ron Hubbard in 1983 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.
