Mom Egg Review: “Home” Issue
Deadline August 1 (must be received by this date; don't enter before May 1). Mom Egg Review, a print and online literary journal about motherhood, seeks submissions of poetry, flash fiction, creative prose, hybrid works, and art for its annual print issue on the theme of "Home". Submissions are free during the first week, May 1-7, and $3 afterwards. Written entries should be 850 words maximum. Editors say, "We are looking for work about motherhood in the context of any of the many connotations of HOME. Some possibilities: Your childhood home, your first apartment, the home you live in and create. Homelessness. Home land. Home base. Torn between homes. Also all the rooms of the home and what is done in them (kids' room, kitchen, bedroom), the neighborhood, others' homes, being away from home (hospital, travel), etc. Of course, as well, the earth is our home. The nature of 'home'—is a home a place, a feeling, a center, a community? Can work be a home? Can a poem be a home?"
