Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Call for Submissions: Last Chance for Fatherhood Fiction!

No comments

Wanted: writing about fathers, or by fathers, or both...

Literary Mama wants to highlight fatherhood in the month of June, and we always have a particular need for short stories that deal with fatherhood.

Quoting from our submission guidelines:

June: Father's Day Month

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).

Please submit your fatherhood fiction of less than 5,000 words by mid-April (the earlier the better!)

We look forward to reading your work!
