Editorial Focus

Literary Mama believes that all mothers have a story worth sharing and honors the many faces of motherhood by publishing work that celebrates the journey as well as the job. The magazine celebrates the physical, psychological, intellectual, and spiritual processes of motherhood through words and images that may be so stark it hurts. 

Each issue features creative nonfiction, fiction, poetry, columns, essays, book reviews, and profiles.
