Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood

Literary Mama is an all-volunteer organization that brings mothers together through literature. Over the years, our staff has included women who are pregnant with their first child, women whose children have all reached adulthood, and women everywhere in between. Literary Mama’s staff members gain experience, make connections, and make a difference to a global readership and an ever-expanding contributor list of mother (and father) writers. We seek self-motivated, collegial collaborators who are comfortable communicating online and expanding the reach of our journal’s community. If you’re interested in joining us, however, feel free to contact us any time at lminfo (at) literarymama (dot) com. We will keep your information on file for future consideration.

Please note: These are volunteer positions. All work is conducted remotely, via internet.

Current Opportunities

Photography Contributor

Literary Mama seeks photography submissions to pair with the posts on our site. We are looking for photos that offer unique perspectives on motherhood, photos that are artful, versus those that appear staged, and that encourage us to reflect. Please note these excellent examples:

Hands of Love by Renee Thompson. See more of Renee's work at


Photo by Sabato Visconti. See more of Sabato's work at

We always give photo credits and provide a link back to the photographer's website directly on the post's page. Literary Mama reaches approximately 40,000 readers per month, and our social media editor promotes each post via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. In addition, as a photo contributor, your name will be featured in that month's newsletter.

If you would like to feature your evocative, creative photography on Literary Mama, you can review complete submission guidelines here and send .jpg images to: LMphotos (at) literarymama (dot) com.
