Poetry can react to and process change or itself be a force for change in the world. Mothers are both agents of and witnesses to change. In this reading, poets who are mothers explore personal and political change, changes in children and others, changes of mind, body, heart. The reading will be followed by a brief discussion and Q and A centering on the relationship of change of poetry, both in terms of subject matter and craft. Mom Egg Review is a literary journal focused on work by or about mothers.
