Emily Freeman’s book Failure to Appear was published on March 2nd, 2020 by Regal Crest. The road to publication was not easy but she did it with hard work and with the help of her teachers. In this panel discussion you will learn about how Emily, a newbie to memoir writing, had a burning desire to tell her story and get it out in the world. Over three years, she learned about structure and all aspects of memoir writing as well as the publishing world. Her teachers, authors Louise Nayer and Lindsey Crittenden, will talk about the process of working with Emily and how she persisted to reach success.

Emily's book Failure to Appear is available from Alexander Book Company.
