Rosie Award nominations open soon

The Rosanne Fitzgibbon Editorial Award (the Rosie) for editorial excellence honours the memory of Rosanne Fitzgibbon DE (1947–2012) — a distinguished editor of literary fiction, nonfiction and scholarly work in literary studies. She was the inaugural recipient of the Beatrice Davis Editorial Fellowship in 1992.

The Rosie recognises excellence in editing, as demonstrated in one published work (single title or series). The 2021 Rosie Award will be announced at the 10th IPEd Editors Conference in Hobart, Tasmania, next year.
