Momma writers and bloggers for anthology!

No comments

(Posted by, "Mommy Weirdest" on craigslist)

I'm working on putting together an anthology of essays entitled "The Girl Least Likely..." These will all center around a general theme of woman who have stumbled into motherhood after working in academia, as artists or writers, or in the corporate world. We look for writers that aren't ashamed to breast feed in public, who are homeschooling, or found themselves as teen moms who came ahead.

700-3,000 words, queries welcome (and encouraged!)
Compensation: Payment upon publication (could take 6-9 months)
