NATIONAL MAGAZINE AWARD 2007________________________________________________
The Georgia Review won the 2007 National Magazine Award in Essays for Michael Donohue’s “Russell and Mary,” which was published in the Fall/Winter 2006 issue. Donohue’s piece beat out submissions from the New Yorker, Smithsonian, Foreign Policy and New Letters. The National Magazine Awards are given by the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) and administered by the Columbia University School of Journalism.
In “Russell and Mary” the author reconstructs the long lives of his deceased neighbors from evidence found in an abandoned box of letters, drawings, cartoons, and newspaper clippings the neighbors left behind.
In 1986, The Georgia Review won the Fiction award for stories by Lee K. Abbott, Gary Gildner, and Mary Hood.
