Inside NGE

Welcome!

Welcome back! As you can see, we're reopening this blog as "Inside NGE." Keep an eye on this space for an inside look at the process of writing new encyclopedia articles and maintaining our website's 2,200+ published entries on Georgia history and culture. 
Our articles are our publication's bread and butter, and we believe that an open discussion of the process of researching, writing, editing, and fact checking articles can be useful in a different way. The New Georgia Encyclopedia has thousands of stories. We hope that this blog will explain how those stories are created and recorded. Thanks for coming by. We're looking forward to writing with you!
