Many Gendered Mothers

I edit for many gendered mothers, 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.

Even though we’re new, a lot of terrific pieces have already appeared. Catch up with the essays we’ve published so far:

Oh my god, you guys. Dress like a book.

It would be impossible to tell you what a kick I get out of my publicist and literary sorts around Vancouver dressing like book covers. I’ll bet they had a hoot making these, and I surely wish I had been the photographer because I would have had such a gay old time.

Meantime, here’s what I look like when I wake up (or, really, pretty much anytime). If there was a book cover to match, the title would have to be: Slob. Has anyone written that title?

Hey! I looked for plaid book covers but nothing. Find me a book, folks?

Slob
