Explores and Inspires

Review of Mom Egg, Spring 2012

by Renee Beauregard Lute


“The Mom Egg covers so much of what it could mean to be a mother, to know a mother, or to have a mother. There is humor and sadness, elation and despair. I could not have been happier to read this journal.”

(5 stars) 

The Mom Egg Volume 10  2012

by Tanya Angell Allen


“… a magazine that’s … better than many anthologies.…fine creative work like this belongs in the larger conversations about private life and women’s issues… not just to regular readers but to journalists, bloggers, and others looking for new anecdotes to cite when writing about complicated topics.”
