Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
motherhood anthology

No comments

I'm looking to put together an anthology of strong, woman writers who envision the future of motherhood as something all together different from what we see today.

So what's the future to you?
Universal healthcare? Free childcare for all mothers, regardless of race, income, or age? Mother compounds where woman live and raise kids together?

Whatever it is, I'd love to hear it. Right now I have several publishers interested, but I am seeking compelling essays to put together. Essay length between 500-2500 words.

Also looking for quotes, or short "snippets" which can be 200 words, and original artwork.

Essays, prose, fiction...I'm open to anything.

Email me at:
Please use subject line: motherhood 2.0
