The Writer wins another gold
November 18, 2004
|For the second time in three years, The Writer magazine has won a gold medal for Editorial Excellence in Folio magazine's prestigious annual competition.|
The awards were announced last week at Folio's awards dinner in New York City.
The Writer, one of 15 titles published by Kalmbach Publishing Co., Waukesha, Wis., also earned a Folio silver medal in 2001 for Best Redesign in its magazine class and a silver medal last year for Editorial Excellence.
"We're thrilled to receive this award," said the magazine's publisher, Judith Hill. "The Writer editorial team works hard to continue the magazine's 117-year history of excellence. The editors' constant goal is to help writers succeed, and I'm delighted to join in congratulating the staff on this recognition of their own success."
The Writer, which was originally based in Boston, offers a monthly array of well-edited articles aimed at helping all types of writers get better at what they do. Among its regular features are articles on craft, ways to get inspired and keep going, a wealth of market information and insightful author interviews (with the likes of Sue Miller, Mary Higgins Clark, Alan Furst, Gay Talese and David McCullough).
Entrants in The Writer's gold-medal category were judged "on how well they fulfill their mission statements, the quality of their content and creativity, and how the overall design and production supports their mission." Judges were a "Who's Who" of the magazine industry's leading editors, publishers and consultants.
