As one of the world’s foremost writing instructors, and a New York Times Bestselling author himself, over the past 40 years David Farland trained dozens of internationally successful writers, including #1 New York Times Bestsellers such as:
- Brandon Sanderson (Wheel of Time & The Way of Kings)
- James Dashner (The Maze Runner)
- Brandon Mull (Fablehaven)
- Stephanie Meyer (Twilight)
- And many more…
He was the lead judge for the world’s largest science fiction and fantasy writing contests for the past 30 years and helped push J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter to become the bestselling novel of all time.
Farland judged and taught writing workshops with L. Ron Hubbard’s Writers of the Future, one of the largest worldwide writing competitions for new fantasy and science fiction authors.
The contest has helped discover and launch many authors into professional careers, with nearly 100 new science fiction and fantasy books released in just the last year.
David unfortunately passed away at the beginning of 2022, but his knowledge is still with us, and we're happy to share it with you.
