The Literary Reflections Department at Literary Mama is seeking submissions for our July/August 2023 publication. We are looking for original first-person essays about the intersection of parenthood and the creative process, and we welcome perspectives from all genders.
For this issue, we’re interested in pieces between 1,500-3,000 words about children’s summer reading. Whether you have a success story or a tale about struggling to get your child to read during the summer months, we want to hear from you.
The deadline for submissions is May 5, 2023.
For other guidelines and/or to see the type of essays we publish, visit our submissions page.
We look forward to reading your work!
