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 sixteen essays posted! Our most recent include:
Doyali Islam on Sylvia Legris

Adrienne Gruber on Brecken Hancock

Ian Whistle on Judith Copithorne

Evelyn Deshane on Wendy C. Ortiz
Please check out our submissions page for more information.

Forthcoming essays include: Dorothy Palmer on Stella Young, Theresa Smalec on Aritha van Herk, Dawn Promislow on Nadine Gordimer, A.H. Reaume on Virginia Woolf and Terry Abrahams on Anne Carson.
