One of the fun things about being an editor here at Literary Mama is hearing about so many interesting writermama projects. Here's a Call for Submissions for a zine on Mothering and Mental Health.

It's a mega-zine, a ONE TIME issue on Mothering and Mental Health:

-Meds/No Meds
-Getting through the day
