Novelist and personal essayist Liza Monroy just sold her memoir to Skyhorse Publishing. The Marriage Act is about Liza’s green-card marriage to her Middle Eastern gay best friend while her mother worked for the State Department preventing immigration fraud. The book will be out in fall 2013 and we can’t wait to read it!
Don’t miss Liza’s Writing the Personal Essay (Online) this spring. Says Liza: “I love teaching in the Writers’ Program because it attracts such a diverse group of students from all over the world. There’s such an array of voices and perspectives, and that’s what I value most about online education—the variety of people of various ages, cultures, and time zones in one proverbial room. It makes for a very rich intellectual experience.”
