Welcome to Write On Mama!
Write on Mama! is a writing community for mothers of children of all ages and all kinds of writers. WOM provides a space for mothers to write and think and prompts to encourage a writing flow. If you’re looking to spark a creative practice or need a moment to slow down and be in your own head, this is the place for you.
Creativity is one of the keys to navigating the motherhood journey and a powerful way to notice one’s experience. I like to explore how motherhood is a work in progress — not a box to squeeze ourselves into.
WOM offers creative-writing-based programs depending on where you’re at on your motherhood trip. Keep in mind that you don’t have to be a writer or even like writing to enjoy these sessions!
Write On Mama! was created by Laura Repo in 2012, as ‘Writing Through the Twilight Zone’. The first installation of WOM was a weekly session for mamas/parents with babies. We met for a year in a few different cafes in Toronto’s west end. Over the past 10 years, we have had writing sessions at The Depanneur, The Brockton Haunt, Artscape Youngplace, The Gladstone Hotel, Field Trip and Miss Pippa’s.
WOM is facilitated by Laura Repo.
