Write on Mama! is a writing community for mothers of children of all ages. Once a month we provide a space for you to write and think and some writing prompts to get you back into a writing flow. We spend time reading to each other at the end of the session, which is always optional. This is a group for every kind of writer, from journal keepers to novelists and everything in between.

We meet on the first Wednesday of the month on Zoom at 7pm with a special guest who leads the prompts and talks about their writing. Please hop on our mailing list to stay in touch — hit ‘subscribe’ above.

The next session is with writer, Jaclyn Desforges. Here’s what she has planned for us:

“Picture books are short, but they can be intimidating to write. Never fear: In this hour-long seminar with writer Jaclyn Desforges, you’ll learn how to apply techniques from other genres to writing picture books. Whether you’re a poet, a novelist, or completely new to the writing world, this session will offer the guidance you need to get started.”

Jaclyn Desforges is the author of a picture book, Why Are You So Quiet? (Annick Press, 2020), and a forthcoming poetry collection with Palimpsest Press. She is an MFA candidate at the University of British Columbia, and her writing has been featured in literary magazines across Canada. She’s currently writing a book of short stories with the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
