many gendered mothers
This project is directly inspired by the American website Literary Mothers, created by editor Nadxieli Nieto and managing editor Nina Puro. While we hope that Literary Mothers might eventually return to posting new pieces, our site was created as an extension and furthering of their project (in homage, if you will), and not meant as any kind of replacement.
We’ve now twenty-one essays posted! Our most recent include:
A.H. Reaume on Virginia Woolf
Julie Morrissy on Eavan Boland
Dawn Promislow on Nadine Gordimer
Theresa Smalec on Aritha van Herk
Dorothy Palmer on Stella Young
Please check out our submissions page for more information
Forthcoming essays include: Terry Abrahams on Anne Carson, Sue Rainsford on Cixous, McBride, Kapil and Yuknavitch, Lorin Medley on H.D., and Suzi Banks Baum on Willa Cather, among others.
We are also still accepting signed books for our upcoming fundraiser! and check out our new Patreon page!
