Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Submission Guidelines: Profiles and Interviews

Editors: Christina Consolino and Kelsey Madges
LMprofiles (at) literarymama (dot) com


We seek profiles of writers who are mothers, or writers who write about motherhood (who may or may not be mothers themselves), or writers who have something to say to mothers. We accept the Interview (Q&A) or Profile format. Profiles should be 750-2500 words.

Cast your net widely. We're interested in profiles of well-known, living mama writers, of course, but also in off-beat, lesser-known, not-so-obvious mama writers. Has anyone profiled Harriet Beecher Stowe as a mama writer, for example? Surprise and delight us.

Please send a query first. Tell us why you're the person who should be profiling this writer, and why we should be interested, too. Be sure to include "Profile Submission" in the subject line.
