Writing Prompt: Mothering Left to Write

No comments

In this month's "Mothering Left to Write," C. Delia Scarpitti writes about the thrill of being awarded a prestigious grant for her writing.

Have you ever received a coveted acceptance letter or honor for your writing? What about a painful rejection? How did it impact you and those around you?


Sarah Raleigh Kilts is a proud member of the amazing Motherlode Writers Group (I love you guys!). Her writing has been published in Common Ties. Following her passions led her to discover a new career that’s tons of fun — as an elementary school music teacher to 220 fabulous 3rd 4th and 5th graders she gets to share her love of music and world culture with a captive — though often wiggly and giggly — audience. She lives with her family in the San Francisco Bay Area and can sometimes be found (even on school nights!) performing in local watering holes plucking the bass and singing with her hubby Thom in their Indie Rock duo, Diablo’s Dust. Three of their albums are currently available on iTunes.
