YOUR story is what this project is all about.  Here’s how it works:

  • WRITE YOUR STORY, keeping the focus on:
  • The influence and/or impact the mother figure in  your life has had on the person you are today  (doesn’t have to be your biological mother), OR
  • Your own experience as a mother and the impact this role has had on the person you are today.
      • It doesn’t have to be a happy story.  Many of them aren’t.  Don’t worry if you’re not a journalist.  I’m interested in your story– not your prosaic acumen.  I might do a bit of editing, but it’s my intent to keep it as close to what you submit as possible.

  • SUBMIT YOUR STORY to me via the submissions page
  • If you don’t want to be identified in the post, no problem.  Just let me know and I’ll be sure not to include your 411.
  • SUBMIT PHOTOGRAPHS that complement your story.  Scanned jpeg images are best.  Photos are not necessary, but they’re good for context.
  • If you are in San Francisco (or nearby), I’ll come to you to take photographs.
