Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Take a Birthing the Mother Writer Class!

No comments

Based on Cassie Premo Steele's interactive Birthing the Mother Writer column here at Literary Mama, this course will allow you to deepen your relationship to both your mother-self and your writer-self. Topics covered include self-care, the power of 'no,' accessing your wise voice within, and finding ways to deepen your writing. Each week, a reading from a Mother Writer will open discussion, and then writing prompts will allow participants to explore topics in a secure, confidential way. A Literary Mama writer who worked with Cassie earlier this year had this to say:

"Working with Cassie Premo Steele worked well for me because she offered very concrete feedback. The questions she asked got me going where I needed to go. She was direct, yet supportive. There is a fine line between encouraging and critiquing, and I feel Cassie Premo Steele is very adept in that arena."
