Faye Rapoport DesPres

New Interview with Five Directions Press

Many thanks to Five Directions Press and Joan Schweighardt for publishing a new interview with me in their online newsletter. Joan asked me about my strategies for fitting a writing life into a 9-5 working life (not easy) and about the process of turning individual personal essays into a book-length manuscript. She also asked how I ended up writing children’s books after my first book, a memoir-in-essays, was published.

There are other tidbits in the interview as well.
