Editors’ Choice Award Winners

This year’s PENCON editors’ conference was AWESOME! If you are a freelance editor or interested in possibly becoming one, or a writer who wants to learn more about editing, I strongly encourage you to attend next year’s conference. They’re virtual, so you can attend from anywhere. Sessions are recorded, so you can watch anything you missed after the conference. Check it out at penconeditors.com.

Just before the final keynote of PENCON, I was privileged to announce the winners of this year’s Editors’ Choice Award. This honor goes to the teams behind recently published books that are so well written and so meticulously edited, even a professional editor can enjoy them.

Here are the books that passed the multiple judging rounds required to become winners of the Editors’ Choice Award this year:






Congratulations to the authors, editors, and publishers behind these wonderful books!

I hope you’ll check out these books for yourself. You’ll be in for a real treat with any of them.

And if you’ve written, edited, or published a book coming out in 2024, consider entering it into next year’s Editors’ Choice Award. They’ll be accepting submissions starting June 1st.
