m a n y _ g e n d e r e d _ m o t h e r s : s e v e n _ r e c e n t _ e s s a y s

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 more than forty essays posted! Our most recent include:

Amy Lauren on Alison Bechdel

Tanis MacDonald on Alice Munro

Dominique Russell on Louise Glück [pictured]

Jacqueline Doyle on Joyce Carol Oates, Jayne Anne Phillips, Sandra Cisneros, Toni Morrison, Hélène Cixous

Rose Cullis on Maggie Nelson

Evelyn Deshane on Joan Didion

S. Nadja Zajdman on Ruth King Porter
