Georgia Writers Association (GWA) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that provides resources to writers in Georgia’s literary communities. At monthly writers workshops, published authors share their experiences, techniques, and advice regarding aspects of the writing and publishing process. GWA also hosts two annual events, the Georgia Author of the Year Awards and the Red Clay Writers Conference.

This year marks the 55th Anniversary of the Georgia Author of the Year Awards (GAYA), an annual award ceremony that honors the outstanding efforts of Georgia’s published authors. The winners and finalists, authors chosen from each of the fiction and nonfiction categories, are announced at the banquet at Westside Cultural Arts Center.

Sponsors receive the opportunity to network with the other professionals, advertise to our growing readership, and participate in our annual events. Furthermore, all contributions to the GWA are tax deductible and enable us to provide quality events, speakers, and benefits to our literary community.
