Just three weeks ago, L. Ron Hubbard’s Writers of the Future Online Workshop was announced as a free online tool for aspiring writers. The course is comprised of 13 videos by New York Times bestselling authors Orson Scott Card, David Farland, and Tim Powers, along with 11 essays by Contest founder L. Ron Hubbard, and writing assignments. So far it has resulted in over 2,000 people signing up from over 40 countries across 6 continents reported Emily Goodwin, the workshop’s producer.
An impressive 72% of those taking the workshop have a story completed by the end of the course, an accomplishment many have unsuccessfully aspired to in the past.
The competition for new stories can be daunting―R. R. Bowker reported more than 1,000,000 books published in 2017, up from 300,000 in 2009, with 2/3rds being self-published. And so the Writers of the Future Online Workshop was created to help authors take their stories to the next level and rise above the competition.
International bestselling author and Writers of the Future Contest judge Tim Powers (On Stranger Tides) stated, “It’s a terrific package! The essays, the videos, the totally smooth production―it really is a uniquely valuable resource for writers! I’m glad to have been a part of it.”
