The Literary Reflections Department seeks first-person essays with an intellectual as well as personal focus.

Where is the intersection of reading and motherhood? How does the creative process impact your motherhood? What imprint does living and working as a mother-writer leave on you and your family?

Add your story to the Literary Mama collection. Please send submissions of 750-5000 words to lmreflections(at)literarymama(dot)com in the text of an email (please do not send attachments) along with a brief cover letter. Be sure to include the word "Submission" in the subject line. We respond in 4-6 weeks. Please see our Submissions page for more details.
