If you’re interested in joining us, contact us at lminfo (at) literarymama (dot) com.

Literary Mama seeks photography submissions to pair with the posts on our site. We are looking for photos that offer unique perspectives on motherhood, photos that are artful, versus those that appear staged, and that encourage us to reflect. Please note these excellent examples:
We always give photo credits and provide a link back to the photographer’s website directly on the post’s page. Literary Mama reaches approximately 40,000 readers per month, and our social media editor promotes each post via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
