Join us for a virtual conversation with former Chicago Tribune reporter, free-lance writer and now award-winning fiction writer, Annemarie Mannion. How did she move from newspaper and trade journal by-lines to creating a post-Civil War story of a young woman’s perseverance and resilience as she tries to make a new life for herself. We’ll discuss that, more about Annemarie’s award-winning story, Veritas, and finally, talk about the state of journalism in today’s world from an insider’s point of view. 

Also, we'll feature our announcement of the 2021 Soon to be Famous/De la Página a la Fama Contest Winners! Don't miss this informative event. Register here.
