Known for his witty ability to get a point across, Jon Batson has entertained audiences with his songs in the US, Europe and China since the 60’s.

A wordsmith at heart, after his return to North Carolina, Jon began writing and has over twenty short stories, an action-adventure novella, a completed sci-fi novel and the makings of two graphic novels under way.

“Considering who the judges are and the number of entries each quarter, making the cut of Honorable Mention is encouraging. I plan to enter a different story every quarter.” commented Batson.

The Writers of the Future Contest, specifically designed to help fledgling writers 25 years ago, has helped discover New York Times' best-selling authors Kevin J. Anderson (X Files, Dune, etc.), Sean Williams (The Resurrected Man), Jo Beverly (Dark Champion), Dave Wolverton (Star Wars), Karen Joy Fowler (The Jane Austen Book Club), and Nancy Farmer (The Ear, the Eye and the Arm).

“Many noted writers and artists have judged these awards, or have won them themselves. Notable writing judges have included: Algis Budrys, Gregory Benford, Kevin J. Anderson, Orson Scott Card, Jack Williamson, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Brian Herbert, K. D. Wentworth, Tim Powers, Robert J. Sawyer, Frederik Pohl, Jerry Pournelle, Andre Norton, Larry Niven, and Anne McCaffrey.” stated contest director Joni Labaqui.

The Writers of the Future contest is known internationally and has become the largest, the most well-known and the best established discovery vehicle in the field. Since its inception in 1983, the WOTF contest has helped place more than two hundred and fifty novels and 2,500 short stories on bookshelves around the world. The Writers of the Future Award has also earned its place alongside the Hugo and Nebula awards in the triad of speculative fiction's most prestigious acknowledgements of literary excellence.
