If you haven't heard of the Folio: Eddie and Ozzie Awards, they're basically the Oscars of the magazine, blogging, newswriting and design worlds. The Awards recognize excellence in editorial and design across 200 categories.

This year, Writer's Digest entered two categories—Full Issue and Profile/Q&A—and was named a finalist in both.

For the Full Issue category, our May/June 2018 issue, The Web Issue, was recognized. Inside, we not only included our annual 101 Best Websites for Writers, but the powerful ROAR feature, a showcase of talented authors from traditionally marginalized communities making waves in writing, as well as editors and agents who are quite literally changing the face of publishing. Individuals like Kellye Garrett, whose cozy mysteries that feature a black female protagonist are earning rave reviews in a genre notoriously scarce in diversity; Mindy McGinnis, whose book The Female of the Species confronts rape culture in an unblinking fashion; and Empire Literary’s Penny Moore, founder of the online database Literary Agents of Color. Read extended content from the ROAR feature here.

And for the Q&A, we entered our interview with the great George Saunders, author of Lincoln in the Bardo. In addition to his wonderful insights in the July/August issue of Writer's Digest magazine, which you can read here, we developed two kinetic typography videos to accompany the interview.

Stay tuned to see whether WD earns the top prize in these categories of the Eddie and Ozzie Awards!
