TASSY JUDGES

2001-2020

This list of judges is an appreciation of the expertise that has been generously offered by more than 150 top professionals to the Tassy Walden Award in its first twenty years. These judges may have moved from the publishing house or agency listed under their names—or they may be altogether retired from the industry—but the list illuminates the quality of the judging we gratefully rely on.
