CONGRATULATIONS TO THESE LITERARY MAMA STAFF MEMBERS!

Libby Maxey, Literary Reflections Co-Editor: "I had a poem in the winter issue of Brain of Forgetting, another in the 2015 issue of The Mom Egg Review, and two in the spring issue of Off the Coast.  As always, I thank the LM blog for reminding me to submit when I might otherwise forgot to bother."

Caroline Grant, Former Editor-in-Chief: "I’ll add my piece in The Mid this month, about watching the Dawn Wall climbers ascend El Capitan while realizing that my mom is making a long descent."

Suzanne Kamata, Fiction Co-Editor: Two of my poems were published in The Wide Shore, and I published an essay on traveling with my daughter - "War and Peace and Napoleon" in Transnational Literature. Also, I had a small brush with fame as my book Call Me Okaasan: Adventures in Multicultural Mothering was used as a prop in the movie "Stockholm, Pennsylvania" starring Cynthia Nixon."
