Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Subscription to Brain, Child benefits Literary Mama

One comment

Brain, Child has always been one of our favorite journals for writing about contemporary motherhood; in addition to publishing great fiction and essays like we do here, Brain, Child also offers parenting-related news and well-researched features that we love to read.

So we're happy now to announce a collaboration: for every Brain, Child subscription via this link, Literary Mama will earn $5. Now, that may not seem like much, but we are all volunteers here and even one $5 donation is coffee and a muffin for one of our hardworking mama editors. If many of you subscribe, then we may be able to send one of our editors on a short writing retreat! And you will be enjoying a year of great Brain, Child writing.

So please: support Literary Mama; subscribe to Brain, Child!
