We believe that the art of writing is essential to our society, and for 17 years, our goal has been to create a place for mother writers to publish their work. In 2019, Literary Mama became an official 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and we are grateful for your support in carrying our journal into the future!
Literary Mama is and has always been an all-volunteer operation, and our 25 editors put in their time and energy because they feel passionate about what we are creating. Our journal is dedicated to publishing work in conventional genres of fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry, but we’re more than a conventional literary journal. We’re a community whose goal is to capture in words the complex elements of motherhood. From submission to publication and beyond, we support our writers every step of the way, with constructive revision feedback, social media promotion, and celebration of every success.
If you’ve found inspiration for your own writing or recognized your own motherhood experience here, consider a donation. If you’ve met a new author to love, discovered a favorite among our book reviews, or found a home for your own writing here, please help us ensure a sustainable future for Literary Mama.
Literary Mama is an exempt organization as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Your donations are tax deductible and no donation is too small.
