“Who We Are”

No comments

Each week, we will introduce you to one of the women behind Literary Mama, including a link to her blog and/or website. Our diverse group of talented, smart and creative women work hard to honor "the difficult and rewarding work women do as they move into motherhood by making these stories visible."

First up: Kathy Moran, Editorial Assistant in Literary Reflections. Kathy has two grown boys and two granddaughters. In addition to being a retired secondary language arts teacher and literary magazine adviser in the Missouri public school system, Kathy is also a teacher consultant for the Greater Kansas City Writing Project and has been published in the Project's magazine The Quarterly (Caring Comes First: A Personal Narrative) and the Missouri Teachers Council of English publication Missouri Teachers Write. More recently, she developed the curriculum for an American literature semester course for the Center for Distance Learning and Independent Study at the University of Missouri. Kathy's personal reflections can be found at marmee's corner and marmee's musings.
