2020 Scribe Award Winners Announced

The  International Association of Media Tie-In Writers has announced the winners for the 2020 Scribe Awards. Current IAMTIW president Jonathan Mayberry made the announcement live during a video stream on Facebook July 15.

The IAMTIW works to enhance the professional and public image of writers who tackle media tie-in fiction. The organization works with the media for reviews, and provides a forum for tie-in writers to share information and discuss issues related to the field. The Scribe Awards recognize excellence in the craft of creating stories within established media franchises. The IAMTIW was founded by Max Allan Collins and Lee Goldberg.
