Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood

No comments



Andrea Lani, Literary Reflections Co-Editor: "My essay "Four Days at Russell Pond" about my family's first backpacking trip appeared in Issue 19 of TrailGroove Magazine. A short, untitled essay about my son, an owl, and a pine tree was featured in the "A Place in Mind" section of the Winter 2014 issue of Northern Woodlands Magazine. I contributed a piece called "The Twins and The Pendulum" to a series about siblings on the Brain, Mother blog last month. And finally, my first published essay, "Raising Private Milo," which originally appeared in the Spring 2010 issue of Brain, Child Magazine, was resurrected on Brain, Child's website in January."


Kate Haas, Creative Nonfiction Co-Editor: "My essay, "Killing the Magic," about my mom, my Jewish family, and Santa, was published in Full Grown People this past December. A few days later, it was picked up by the Jewish Daily Forward, who retitled it "What Would Tevye Say About Santa Claus?" And my 2013 Brain, Child essay, "The Secret Life," about an intense friendship between new mothers, and how it ended, appeared online for the first time in January."


Dina Relles, Blog Co-Editor was thrilled to have a personal essay published on Full Grown People. End of the Road explores her forbidden interfaith relationship and perpetual questions of faith, life, family, love, and what could have been.


Caryn Mohr, Social Media Co-Editor: "I was thrilled to be accepted for the spring session of the Association of Writers and Writing Programs' (AWP) Writer to Writer Mentorship Program in the area of creative nonfiction. I'm honored to be mentored by essayist and memoir writer Candy Schulman, a writing professor at The New School in New York City. In the initial month of the program, I've already seen great progress with my memoir. I'm grateful to Candy and AWP!"
