Of Mothers and HOME

We seek work about motherhood in the context any of the many connotations of HOME. Some possibilities: Your childhood home, first apartment, the home you live in and create. Homelessness. Home land. Home base. Torn between homes. Also all the rooms of the home and what is done in them (kids’ room, kitchen, bedroom), the neighborhood, others’ homes, being away from home (hospital, travel), etc. Of course, as well, the earth is our home. The nature of “home”—is a home a place, a feeling, a center, a community? Can work be a home? Can a poem be a home?

We publish poetry, flash and short fiction, creative prose, and hybrid works (up to 850 words). We also seek mother-themed art.
