St Johnsbury, VT (PRWEB) September 24, 2007
This September Mom Writer's Literary Magazine (MWLM) will unveil perhaps its finest issue ever. Packed with fictional, penetrating and humorous writing, the popular Web-based and printed magazine is full of supportive, practical stories on motherhood and writing.
"We are thrilled to feature author Lisa Garrigues on our fall cover. She speaks to mom writers and mom writing-wanna-bees in a realistic way," said Paula Schmitt, MWLM's founder and publisher.
Author of "Writing Motherhood: Tapping Into Your Creativity As A Mother And A Writer," Garrigues speaks to new mothers and grandmothers as she outlines a way women can use their many parenting stories to tap into their creativity. Part inspiration, part step-by-step guide, "Writing Motherhood" uses a variety of tools to help mothers express themselves. "This is one book our readers will really be able to use," Schmitt said.
In addition to a provocative cover story, the fall edition of MWLM also includes several fascinating profiles. "We have assembled a series of profiles that we are very proud of," said Schmitt. "They highlight some inspirational women writers who have really perfected their craft." Readers will hear the stories of Carol Evans, CEO and President of Working Mother Magazine and Jayne Jaudon Ferrer mother and author of the funny and frank "She of the Rib: Women Unwrapped." Award-winning author and professor Michelle Herman also is profiled.
MWLM always includes at least one book review and the fall issue presents two. Bestselling author Jacquelyn Mitchard's "Still Summer," is a catch-your-breath thriller that follows the heroic and dangerous adventures of four girlfriends. "The Mother-Daughter Project" by SuEllen Hamkins M.D. and Renee Schultz M.A. uses the idea that teenage girls actually do want a close relationship with their mothers to develop community-based mother daughter groups.
Mom Writer's Literary Magazine has twice been named "One of the Best Sites for Writers" by Writer's Digest Magazine and this fall issue is packed with encouraging, useful, and fictional stories that are destined to inspire mom writers everywhere. Typical issues contain feature stories, poetry, columns, profiles and essays. A fabulous resource for writing mothers, MWLM provides a no-holds-barred way for authors to shine the spotlight on the colorful and complicated world of parenthood.
"MWLM gives moms a way to look past their dream of becoming a writer, and let's them stretch their literary muscle by providing practical ways they can actually write. It really gives women the freedom and encouragement to be creative. It doesn't matter if it's a private journal, a holiday letter, or an e-mail to an old roommate, women can use the art of writing to express themselves," Schmitt said.
