Tune in Sunday night, May 15, 2011 at 6 PM Pacific time to watch the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Contest celebrate it’s 27th year. All of the 12 writer winners and all of the 12 illustrator winners from the vol. XXVII book will be accepting their awards, live from the ballroom of the famed Roosevelt Hotel on Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, California. Present will be a who’s who of Contest judges from across the United States and around the world, including Dave Wolverton, Kevin J. Anderson, Robert J. Sawyer, Mike Resnick, Eric Flint, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Jerry Pournelle, Gregory Benford, Yoji Kondo, Rebecca Moesta, Tim Powers, K.D.
