Mom Egg Review—Restore the Balance of Narratives with Marjorie Tesser

Interview by 
Rachel Thompson
Marjorie Tesser, editor of Mom Egg Review

Mom Egg Review is a literary journal about motherhood. It promotes and celebrates the creative force of mother writers and artists. Mom Egg Review is about being a mother, in its many varieties. It is also about being a daughter, worker, partner, artist, a member of cultures and communities, and explores how these identities can collide and coexist.

Lit Mag Love Podcast host, Rachel Thompson, spoke with editor Marjorie Tesser about the power of letting mothers tell their own stories in their own ways.

Rachel Thompson is the host of the Lit Mag Love podcast and a member of Room's editorial collective. (Submit to the upcoming issue on the theme Neurodivergence that's she'll co-edit with Meghan Bell.) Rachel teaches courses and supports a warm writing community at rachelthompson.co.

 

“It's Canadian, feminist, and one of my favourite things ever.”
