Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
From the Editor, Summer 2017

No comments

I'm pleased to dedicate this editor's letter to the artists and photographers who shared their work with us last year. For some, their art is inspired by illness, disease, or tragedy. For others, their purpose is to tell a story about a specific moment in time.

I hope you're as moved by the images as I am. Those pictured in the collage to the right accompany pieces we published last year in literary reflections, fiction, CNF, and the editor's letter. You can learn more about each artist or photographer at the end of the specific piece.
