Scribe Awards 2022: The nominees!

Awwwwww, yeah. It’s that time again.

Since its founding in 2006, the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers (IAMTW) has acted to advocate for the authors who work across the broad spectrum of publications comprising the field of media tie-in writing.

Each year, the IAMTW sponsors the Scribe Awards as a way to recognize noteworthy accomplishments by those who craft new tales within the “expanded universe” of movie and television franchises. This year’s awards include seven categories to highlight excellence in this often misunderstood or simply overlooked corner of storytelling.

Check out this year’s crop of nominees, for work published during 2021:
