Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood

No comments

MotherVerse, a magazine dedicated to the biological, cultural, psychological, and universal state of motherhood has created a new format for mothers:

You don’t have to be a writer or have your own blog to get your voice heard on the internet. MotherVerse wants you to Mother Out Loud right here. We think ALL moms should have the right to speak up, no matter where you are on the matter who you are or what you do.

So get your voice out there and send us a short (500 words or less) statement on what it is like to mother in your corner of the globe. We have included little ‘interview guide’ if you need a little guidance, but please feel free to go your own direction. We want to hear what you’re thinking about, what you’ve been working on, how the heck you make it day to day, what you love, what you don’t and what you think the world needs to hear. Or, hey, just tell us what’s going on in your living room right now. It doesn’t have to be spectacular, just honest and yours (ok and spellchecked too). If we deem it blog friendly we’ll post it along with your name (aliases are ok), region, photos, and any website link you may have.

Submit your words and any photos you would like included to with Mothering Out Loud in the subject line. We’ll let you know as soon as it goes up and you can start bragging to your friends. (just a little note, we will assume if you send it you want it will maintain rights to your own work but by submitting it you give us the right to publish it on the blog asap, and, of course, we reserve the right to not publish your work if we so choose).
