Published in Mom Egg Review
So after a number of years of submitting my writing sporadically and getting summarily rejected, the wonderful journal Mom Egg Review accepted a short bit of prose and is publishing it in their print edition in April. I hope ya'll will support this small press and order a copy -- they are available now. The other work in the issue is brilliant, and I'm proud to be a part of it again (they published a piece of mine several years ago).
Here are the deets:
Mom Egg Review Vol. 15 is a unique literary collection about motherhood. MER is about being a mother in its many varieties; it is also about being a daughter, worker, partner, artist, a member of cultures and communities; MER explores how these identities can collide and coexist. We publish work with ideas, exciting use of language, and strong creative energy. Our writers consider the body, work, family and societal roles, sex, local and global crises, and making art. The stories and poems -- intelligent, irreverent, lyrical, funny, sharp -- cast light on the multifaceted life experience of motherhood, and out from it.
You can read more about MER and find additional features, book reviews, interviews, submissions info and more at http://www.momeggreview.com.
The issue launches this April, but copies are available now. As a contributor, I can invite friends and family to purchase copies at a discount MER community rate of $15 (cover price is $18). Click the link for more info or if you would like to order a copy for yourself or as a gift.
Don't stop submitting your work. It's been my experience that if you keep doggedly submitting, eventually someone out there will take a chance and publish your work. As for writing, it goes without saying that you keep at it anyway.
