Motherhood is messy, funny, sad, and layered with reflection. A mother’s story—from Plath to Bombeck—demands to be told. With an eye to craft, we examine mom blogs, essays on motherhood, and “mom” in fiction. Consider the class a threshold for the woman who doesn’t know where to start, but knows that she wants to. There will be writing exercises, prompts, and sharing. Toni Piccinini is the author of The Goodbye Year, a mash-up of letting go and stepping forward.
