Review by Annamaria Formichella   After twenty years of publishing Literary Mama, a publication dedicated to writing for and by mothers, current and past staff members created a space to share their own stories in Labor of Love: A Literary Mama Staff Anthology.

Thirty different writers, representing various ages, backgrounds, and family histories, express their truth in essays, stories, and poems. In a serendipitous coincidence, I found myself with ..read more
