Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Poems About Fatherhood

No comments

Literary Mama is seeking poems about fatherhood, and we welcome male voices for our June Father's Day issue. We seek writing that is about fathers from the child's perspectives; about the relationships between fathers and mothers and husbands and wives; about husbands as fathers; and by self-defined fathers about fathering and mothering (including lesbian or transexual parents who identify as fathers). As always, we seek poems that are incisive, interesting, and emotionally resonant. Please submit before May 1st to poetry editor Sharon Kraus at lmpoetry@literarymama.com
