Des Moines, IA. (August 9, 2023) – Active Interest Media publication, WRITER’S DIGEST was named a finalist for two 2023 FOLIO: Eddie and Ozzie Award categories. Column “Building Better Worlds” and “WD Interview: Ian McEwan” were both recognized as finalists.

“The publishing industry is bursting with talented professionals working around the clock to deliver meaningful, and engaging content to communities of like interests around the globe”, said Trish Borrelli, Sr. Marketing Director of the Folio: Eddie & Ozzie Awards. “Writers and creatives not only have to break through the noise to engage audiences, they have to make it happen even faster with access to content at our fingertips 24/7. When you truly consider how difficult it is to reach and engage an audience with your content over other options, and then see the ripple effect from the buzz created, you understand why this recognition program means so much to the publishing industry.”

Over 1,100 entries were received across nearly 170 categories. Finalists represent the highest-scoring entries per category, adjudicated by qualified editorial and design professionals.

Taylor Sferra, WRITER’S DIGEST Vice President and General Manager states “It’s an honor for Writer’s Digest to be a finalist for the Eddie Awards, this year in two categories. Both the ‘Building Better Worlds’ column written by Managing Editor Moriah Richard and the ‘WD Interview: Ian McEwan’ written by Editor-in-Chief Amy Jones are the result of years of intense study and deep interest by each author. Amy and Moriah are both incredibly dedicated to helping writers and to their craft. Being recognized by FOLIO: for
these efforts among so many talented industry colleagues is thrilling.”
