Ooligan Press is pleased to announce the acquisition of the untitled memoir from Rosa del Duca. In 1999, Rosa del Duca joined the National Guard.

We are excited to be able to work with del Duca on her first full-length literary work.

The project team that has been known as the Write to Publish team—in charge of Ooligan’s annual writing conference—has transformed into the outreach and project development team. Don’t worry, we’ll still be planning and hosting Write to Publish every year; but as the new name suggests, our duties have expanded to fill the large time gap between each conference.
