Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Call for Submissions: Taproot Magazine

No comments

Taproot is a collection of curated stories written by and for people living fully and digging deeper; people who are interested in deepening their connections to their families, communities, and themselves as they strive to live locally and closer to the ground.

Taproot is inclusive of all families striving to dig deeper, in the ways that manifests in our days, and in the many ways we define family. From rural homesteading to urban gardening, to homeschooling and community living. From family to family, our days may look very different from one another’s. Taproot strives to find the connecting thread that binds us together.
