The purpose of the Unpublished Maggie Award for Excellence is to encourage, recognize, and reward the mastery of romance writing by unpublished authors of romantic fiction. The Maggie Award is a symbol of achievement given by the Georgia Romance Writers (GRW) to bring special attention to these writers. The Maggie, a silver medallion commissioned by GRW, receives national attention. Manuscripts will be ranked by agents and editors in the publishing industry. The names and categories of Maggie recipients and finalists will appear in the Romance Writers Report.

For 2019, we are launching the Mentee Magnolia Program for selected unpublished Maggie winners!  Now, the Maggie Awards provides mentors that help winners get one step closer to landing that editor or agent!
