The Mother of All Losses

A Brighton-based editor is looking for stories from people whose mothers have died for inclusion in an anthology published in 2020. Submissions can be in many forms; essay, poetry, prose, graphic strips, painting etc. If you’re unable or hesitant to write, transcribing is possible. The Editor is looking for a range of voices and experiences – stories by people who may have lost their mother years ago, some recently; some may have had good relationships, some bad, some deeply complex. The anthology aims to be inclusive in its contributors and broad in the experiences it depicts. For more information, email
