Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Update to “Birthing the Mother Writer” Column

No comments

Last week, we published Cassie Premo Steele's newest column but forgot to include the invitation to submit a response. We apologize for the oversight.

Here are Cassie's details:

I invite you to write an essay or a short story (800-1000 words) about the relationship between a mother and a child during adolescence to be published in the next "Birthing the Mother Writer" column. Please email your submission to birthingmotherwriter[AT]gmail[dot]com by June 10th. Be sure to put "Birthing the Mother Writer: 4" in the subject line, include a brief bio and place the text of your piece and your bio in the body of the email.

By sending in your submission, you agree that your piece, if chosen for publication, may receive gentle suggestions for revision from Cassie Premo Steele (many people feel this is the best part of the process!), and you also agree to revise and submit a new version for publication within two weeks.


The Literary Mama Blog Editor searches for mama-centric news you can use — including information about publishing opportunities and literacy efforts; essays and writing prompts that motivate and inspire; and announcements about events, classes, and workshops. The current blog editors are Laura Roberts and Rudri Patel; read their bios here and here.
