Call for Rumpus Readers Report: “Mommy Dearest”


We’re hungry for more writing from Rumpus readers, so we’re now accepting submissions for our next Readers Report!

Through the month of May, we’ll be exploring the idea of “Mothering Outside the Margins.” So this time around, we’re asking you to tackle the theme “Mommy Dearest.”

Please send your submissions, maximum 500 words, to Susan Clements at silentjoy2001 AT We’ll choose the best ones to be included in a feature that will run on the site in May.

All submissions are due by midnight on Friday, April 6. Don’t delay in sending us your work!
