Writers of the Future Discussion Forum Wins Critters Award

The 2020 Critters Annual Readers’ Poll Awards results were announced on January 16, after three weeks of voting. Writers of the Future and its Contest winners won many Best of the Year Awards in addition to several high honors.

These include:

John Goodwin, President Galaxy Press, stated, “This is the second year running that Writers of the Future and winners or judges of the Contest have taken top prizes in the Critters Annual Readers’ Poll.” He noted that the Writers & Illustrators of the Future Podcast had just posted an episode on “the value of the Writers of the Future Forum to improving one’s craft.” www.writersofthefuture.com/podcast

Over 2500 people from around the world voted in the poll, which recognizes achievements in 41 publishing-related categories. The poll is hosted by Critters Writers Workshop, the first writers’ workshop on the web, founded in 1995, home to tens of thousands of writers.

Voters were allowed to leave comments under each category, which included the following for the Best Discussion Forum:

“An international forum for aspiring writers, pooling their knowledge to write professional stories and to help one another succeed!”

“If you want to find support and help for you as an author, this is the place.”

“Friendly, helpful, inspiring … I just can’t say enough good things about the Forum. The past winners are all generous and willing to share their tips with new writers. Forum friends are always glad to provide support and assistance to one another. Together, we’ve congratulated the winners and encouraged friends who received rejects. We watched each other grow, improve, and succeed. Because of the Forum, I found a community of friends who shared my devotion, dedication, and obsession for writing stories.”

“Absolutely the best place for budding science fiction and fantasy writers to get amazing support and advice.”
