Sci-Fi Summer 2020 Cover“The new Writers of the Future Online Writing Course—an extension of L. Ron Hubbard’s Writers of the Future (WOTF) Contest, the world’s preeminent competition for up-and-coming genre authors,” noted Sci Fi editor Jeff Berkwits in the magazine’s Summer 2020 issue, with the goal “to help budding speculative storytellers become future Hugo, Nebula, and WOTF award winners.”

The free intermediate level writing course for the aspiring writer includes essays, assignments, and 13 video presentations featuring Writers of the Future judges: David Farland, Tim Powers, and Orson Scott Card.

International bestselling author and Writers of the Future Contest Judge Orson Scott Card (Ender’s Game) stated, “I hope viewers will be encouraged to write, and to write better. There are great stories as yet unwritten; I hope the viewers of this course will write them so I can read them.”

Created especially for the aspiring writer

With the current stay-at-home situation that many find themselves in, anyone aspiring to be an author will be able to learn from the Writers of the Future Workshop instructors, who are each long-term high school or university creative writing teachers. The workshop instructors walk an aspiring writer through the steps to write a short story making full use of L. Ron Hubbard’s timeless articles on writing. That the course is free and encourages writers to complete and submit their story, makes it perfect not only for an aspiring author but anyone wanting to be able to write stories including homeschooled students or public schooled students.

    I have almost completed the on-line workshop. It’s worth your time. You’ll get out what you put in, but even the most cursory completion will benefit any writer. I encourage you to take the course.
