Exhale Call for Submissions! Spread the Word!

Greetings, KuKd Strong Mommas and Inquisitive Guests!

Exhale is officially in the works, thanks to all of your encouragement and hard work in helping me choose a title. For those of you just now popping into this blog, let me fill you in on Exhale, so you don't feel like that outsider at the chemistry-and-physics faculty cocktail party, wondering what the heck people are talking about.

Exhale is a brand new, online literary magazine written for & by "intelligent people who can't figure out how to make a baby." It will be published every 1-2 months, depending on how strong my coffee is. It is a space for creative expression for women AND MEN who have been knocked up and knocked down, lost a child through infant death or stillbirth, or can't seem to get knocked up in the first place (or - gasp! - all of the above). It is for babymama/babydaddy wannabes, those of us who have decided to move forward into life without kids, and everyone in between. Exhale seeks readers' personal stories, essays, poems, photography, and artwork that are: humorous, gritty, brutally honest, bitchy, whiney, ecstatic, hopeful, hopeless, pissed off, optimistic, and/or raunchy. We are also looking for regular column writers.

Please spread the word to all of your TTC/KuKd Strong Momma friends out there - and yes, their respective sperm-factories. We need your writing, in order to help make our DEBUT ISSUE, coming right around New Years Eve, a smashing success.

Over and out! Looking forward to your writing, dearies!
