Publisher’s description: Mom Egg Review (MER) presents sharp, thoughtful literary work focused on diverse experiences of motherhood. MER publishes work with ideas, exciting use of language, and strong creative energy, by writers with varied perspectives (race, age, geographic location, stage of mothering) and at all career phases.

MER writers employ different voices and creative strategies to write about mothering—pregnancy, the body, nurture—and its interplay with other roles: woman, worker, artist, member of families, cultures, and communities. The stories and poems—intelligent, irreverent, lyrical, funny, sharp—cast light on the multifaceted life experience of motherhood.
