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 nearly sixty essays posted! Our most recent include:

Amy Leblanc on Jeanette Winterson [pictured]

Arielle Burgdorf on Liz Worth

Eve Rachele Sanders on Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë

Michelle Butler Hallett on Flannery O’Connor

Michele Sharpe on Befriending Jane Austen’s Emma

Kim Fahner on Bronwen Wallace

Ronna Bloom on Rhea Tregebov

Drew Kiser on Sylvia Plath
