Update on 56th Annual Georgia Author of the Year Awards Ceremony

We hope this finds you and yours safe and healthy. We would like to share a message from Georgia Writers Association’s Board of Directors concerning the 2020 Georgia Author of the Year Awards ceremony.

The safety of our community is the highest priority for Georgia Writers Association. Therefore, out of an abundance of caution regarding the spread of COVID-19, Georgia Writers Association has cancelled the 2020 Georgia Author of the Year Awards ceremony, scheduled for Saturday, June 13, 2020.

We remain committed to lifting up the voices of Georgia authors and to celebrating the best in local literature. While the in-person gathering is canceled, we are working on other creative ideas to announce this year’s winners. We’ll be back in touch in Mid-May. Until then, please stay safe and keep writing.
