Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
News You Can Use

No comments

As writer mamas, sometimes our job is to help our children learn to be good writers.  Sometimes it seems like the hardest thing to teach them is how to be ethical writers and avoid plagiarism.  Although this infographic is aimed at editors and not families, the Poynter Institute has put together a great explanation of what plagiarism is in all of its forms.  It's a tool to use now that the school year has started and our kids are bringing home all those essay assignments.


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.
