Mother's Day Writing Contest

Calling all mothering artists, creative moms, and moms-to-be! Are you an artist/writer considering motherhood? A seasoned parent returning to writing or art-making after some time away? Or are you a creating mom who has something new to say about how these two powerful life forces intersect?

If so, and in honour of Mother’s Day 2010, we invite you to join the writers and editors of the anthologies Double Lives: Writing and Motherhood and Between Interruptions: Thirty Women Tell the Truth about Motherhood by entering our CREATIVITY AND MOTHERHOOD nonfiction writing contest. The winner will be announced at our joint reading and panel discussion, 7:30 pm Wednesday May 5, at the Vancouver Public Library, downtown branch.

So come up on stage and be congratulated! Just send your typed, double-spaced nonfiction story of up to 500 words along with your name and contact information to shannoncowan {at} shaw {dot} ca by April 15, letting us know how creativity and motherhood intersect in your life, or in the lives of those around you. The lucky winner will receive one free copy of each of the anthologies. The winning essay will also be published online.
