We’re excited to launch a new project at Literary Mama that will bring youth voices (ages 13-21) to our blog.
We’re seeking submissions in the following categories:
* From teen and young adult children of mama writers. How has your mother’s writing life impacted your life? Has it influenced or inspired you? Has it clarified for you that a writing life is or isn’t your path?
* From teen and young adult children of mama writers AND their mamas. Write about a shared topic from your unique perspectives. It could be a poem in two voices, two separate short essays, or some unique combination.
* From teens and young adults about any topic related to literary life and/or motherhood.
Blog submissions should be 500-800 words. Please send submissions to lmblogeditor (at) gmail (dot) com with the subject line “Teen Column.” We’ll be accepting submissions all year in celebration of our 20th anniversary.
