Story Selected for Multi-Media Collaboration at the Museum of Motherhood

antique vintage typewriterI am excited to announce that my piece, Waiting for Words, has been selected by Marjorie Tesser, Editor of The Mom Egg Review, as part of a new ekphrastic project called M.A.M.A. (mothers are making art).

M.A.M.A. is a collaboration between The Mom Egg Review, The ProCreate Project, and the Museum of Motherhood. Twice per month, on the 1st and 15th, The Museum of Motherhood will post art from The ProCreate Project and pair it with poetry or prose from The Mom Egg Review.

M.A.M.A. celebrates the notion of being “pregnant with ideas.” Scholarly discourse intersects with the artistic to explore the wonder and the challenges of motherhood. Using words and art to connect new pathways between the creative, the academic, the para-academic, the digital, and the real, as well as the everyday. Wherever you live, work, and play, the Art of Motherhood is made manifest.

The multi-media online project is already underway. I’m not sure when my piece will be presented, but I will let you know as soon as I know more. You can check out what’s already been posted at You can also view some interesting mother-related art at


As always, it’s an honor to have my work selected and sent out into the world.

Until next time,
