Mothers Always Write is currently running a free poetry contest with a holiday theme: Home for the Holidays. “Share your favorite (or most frustrating) holiday memories and family traditions. Send us your best holiday poems between November 1st and November 30th via Submittable, noting "Home for the Holidays Poetry Contest" in your cover letter.”

Mothers Always Write is a new online, monthly lit mag publishing “essays and poetry about the mothering experience.”  Their first issue is ready for reading and will give you a feel for the topics and style of writing they prefer–with poems and essays from all aspects of parenting–from babyhood to adult children.
