This is one of favorite writing assignments ever. I don’t do a ton of freelance writing, but I had vowed to become a Magazine contributor. I’ve pulled this off sooner than I expected, and I couldn’t be happier.
Shown above is the tropical fruit known as the quenepa (or the mamoncillo). It’s my favorite fruit, and a focus of my essay.
As such, it is the culmination of a nearly lifelong writing aspiration. I had wanted for decades to write about the quenepa, but never got around to it … nor found a good venue for the topic. The Magazine is the perfect one!
