The Georgia Review Finalist for National Magazine Award for Fiction

The Georgia Review was honored to be a finalist for the 2024 American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) Award for Fiction with stories published in the 2023 volume year: Shipwreck” by Yiru Zhang, “Mother, Marksman” by Ernie Wang, and “Bridling” by Nadia Davids.  

Established in 1966, the National Magazine Awards for Print and Digital Media are sponsored by ASME in association with the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. “Originally limited to print magazines, the awards now recognize magazine storytelling published in any medium,” ASME’s press release states. The other publications announced as finalists in the fiction category were Harper’s Magazine, The New Yorker, and American Short Fiction. The Paris Review was named the winner for this category. The Georgia Review won the award in fiction in 2022. 

Winners of other categories will be announced at the 2024 National Magazine Awards ceremony on April 2nd in New York City. 

“I’m thrilled about the recognition,” says Georgia Review director and editor Gerald Maa, “Especially because a second nod in three years suggests that we’re doing something remarkable in practice, rather than just for 2021 or 2023.  Like any award or recognition for The Georgia Review, this is for the whole team.  It takes everybody’s work to make any publication live.  This submission is especially indebted to the work of associate editors Maggie Su and Soham Patel, former associate editor Doug Carlson, and managing editor CJ Bartunek.  I’m thrilled to celebrate our team on this national level.” 

The Georgia Review congratulates all winners and finalists of this year’s National Magazine Awards! See the full list.
