Prepublished Judge Sign Up

Dear Romance Author,


An aspiring writer needs you.


Georgia Romance Writers, a chapter of Romance Writers of America, requests a donation of your time and talent to judge the prestigious 2023 Prepublished Maggie Awards for Excellence in Romance Writing. We know your time is valuable, and you've already given back more than your fair share to the writing community. However, you know better than anyone how a good, honest and inspiring critique changes the world of a prepublished author. We appreciate each and every volunteer judge who values our writers of Romance.


Each judge will receive, on average, up to five (5) electronic entries, each of which is limited to 35 pages of manuscript/synopsis. Entries will be sent to judges by April 23, 2023. Scores and comments are due back by June 15, 2023.


To participate, simply fill out the Author Judge Application linked below, and submit. Your information will remain confidential and will not be released for any reason.


Thank you for considering this request.


Sia Huff

GRW 2023-2024 Director of Awards
