Neil Gaiman and Writers of the Future?

Postby Doug Dargel » Fri Jun 26, 2020 10:34 am

There are some websites that say that Neil Gaiman said this about Writers of the Future.
“Always a glimpse of tomorrow’s stars.” While author Neil Gaiman states, “The Writers of the Future Contest has not only provided a place where new writers could break into print for the first time, but it also has a record of nurturing and discovering writers who have gone on to make their mark in the science fiction field. Long may it continue!”


Is this true? I tried contacting him on his website but he hasn't responded yet (if ever).

I'm usually up for a critique and I encourage you to ask me in a PM.
