many gendered mothers is a project on literary influence featuring short essays by writers (of any/all genders) on the women, femme, trans, and non-binary writers who have influenced them, as a direct or indirect literary forebear.

This project is directly inspired by the American website Literary Mothers, created by editor Nadxieli Nieto and managing editor Nina Puro. While we hope that Literary Mothers might eventually return to posting new pieces, our site was created as an extension and furthering of their project (in homage, if you will), and not meant as any kind of replacement.

We've now twelve essays posted! Our most recent include:
Robin Richardson on Anne Frank

Elee Kraljii Gardiner on Betsy Warland

Jane Eaton Hamilton on Ntozake Shange

Jennifer LoveGrove on Libby Scheier

Please check out our submissions page for more information.

Forthcoming essays include: Doyali Islam on Sylvia Legris, Adrienne Gruber on Brecken Hancock, Dorothy Palmer on Stella Young, Ian Whistle on Judith Copithorne, Dawn Promislow on Nadine Gordimer and A.H. Reaume on Virginia Woolf.
