Some of you may remember back in August when I had my writing featured in Minnesota’s Emerging Writers: An Anthology of Nonfiction. I am happy to announce that my writing has also been selected as one of 40 essays from around the country to be published in America’s Emerging Writers: An Anthology of Nonfiction!
America’s Emerging Writers: An Anthology of Nonfiction is now available and can be purchased through this link.
Taken from the website’s description of the book:
“There is a troubling catch-22 that exists in the world of publishing: in order to be published – at least by any of the major houses – you must already have been published. Inevitably, this cycle leaves the aspiring writer with the pressing question of where to begin. This is why, in the winter of 2017, we started our Emerging Writers series – to showcase the work of talented writers and poets who may otherwise not have had the opportunity. Nearly two years later, those efforts have culminated in perhaps our most ambitious project to date. In America’s Emerging Writers: An Anthology of Nonfiction, 40 of our favorite up-and-coming writers from across the nation join together to share their words. Covering a wide array of genres and topics, these young talents will amaze you. Containing one essay per writer, this anthology is a compelling introduction to the great wordsmiths of tomorrow.”
My particular piece, “Why Does Everyone Look So Happy?”, concerns the misrepresentation of people’s lives through social media, and how we can attempt to circumvent it to find our own happiness. Thank you for reading, and please feel free to purchase the book to read my essay and others by my fellow writers.
