many gendered mothers is a project on literary influence featuring short essays by writers (of any/all genders) on the women, femme, trans, and non-binary writers who have influenced them, as a direct or indirect literary forebear.

This project is directly inspired by the American website Literary Mothers, created by editor Nadxieli Nieto and managing editor Nina Puro. While we hope that Literary Mothers might eventually return to posting new pieces, our site was created as an extension and furthering of their project (in homage, if you will), and not meant as any kind of replacement.

We've now eight essays posted! Our most recent include:
Susan Rudy on Nicole Brossard

Emily Izsak on Mina Loy

Evelyn Deshane on Angela Carter

Laura Mars on Daphne Marlatt

Please check out our submissions page for more information.

Forthcoming essays include: Robin Richardson on Anne Frank, Elee Kraljii Gardiner on Betsy Warland, Jane Eaton Hamilton on Ntozake Shange, Jennifer LoveGrove on Libby Scheier and Ian Whistle on Judith Copithorne.
