Scientology's Lavish Annual Party for Pampered Sci-Fi Writers, This Sunday! - 2013-04-12
Last year, we noticed that some former winners of Scientology's "Writers of the Future" awards were nervously wondering if they'd been had.
With so much bad publicity plaguing the church, was it really such a good thing to win an award from an organization becoming increasingly known for things like locking up its executives in a hellish office-prison?
The contest attracts very prestigious writers in the science fiction and fantasy realms to judge entries by new, unpublished writers for a big boost in their careers. There's no doubt that it's a great contest, and it's awash in money, putting on a weeklong celebration in Hollywood.
