Your customers and patrons love romance!


Georgia Romance Writers, a chapter of Romance Writers of America, is pleased to invite current and former librarians, booksellers, and other industry professionals to judge the prestigious 2023 Maggie Awards for Excellence in Romance Writing. We appreciate each and every volunteer judge who values our authors of Romance.

You may request as many books as you can read within the scoring period. Entries will be sent to judges by April 5, 2023. Scores are due back by June 4, 2023.
