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 twenty-one essays posted! Our most recent include:
A.H. Reaume on Virginia Woolf

Julie Morrissy on Eavan Boland

Dawn Promislow on Nadine Gordimer

Theresa Smalec on Aritha van Herk

Dorothy Palmer on Stella Young
Please check out our submissions page for more information. We've even a Facebook page!

Forthcoming essays include: Terry Abrahams on Anne Carson, Sue Rainsford on Cixous, McBride, Kapil and Yuknavitch, Lorin Medley on H.D., and Suzi Banks Baum on Willa Cather, among others.

We are also still accepting signed books for our upcoming fundraiser! and check out our new Patreon page! All donations will be going directly toward paying contributors.
