Today’s post is dedicated to all you mothers out there.
There are plenty of literary journals out there, and there are even ones that focus exclusively on motherhood. Literary Mama , for one, seeks fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and profiles based on the experiences of motherhood.
If you’re a writer: break away from whatever work you’re doing today. Start by freewriting on a blank piece of paper. Begin with the words “My mother.” That’s the only rule. You can go any direction you want with it — just as long as those are the first two words. (Some of the best ones might be nothing about your mother. That’s okay, too.)
If you’re not a writer, do it anyway. And then frame it. Check that mother’s day gift off your list.
Cheers to all my favorite mamas this weekend!
