The Published Maggie Award for Excellence Published recognizes authors who have published outstanding books in the romance genre. 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. Books will be scored and ranked by a panel of booksellers and librarians. The names and categories of Maggie recipients and finalists will appear in the Romance Writers Report.
