Writers in Residence

Share Your Stories

From the beginning, the Kindred Mom blog has featured the writing of mothers from a variety of backgrounds, both personally and in regards to their writing. In Fall 2018, we launched our Writers in Residence Program. Each season, we select a small group of writers to be part of our work behind-the-scenes and to help shape the content of the upcoming series. This allows us to partner with writers who have a particular perspective or experience related to the topics we explore as a community to best serve our readers and listeners. It also gives us an opportunity to introduce our readers and listeners to the meaningful projects our Writers in Residence pour their hearts into.

Writers in Residence demonstrate high-quality writing, a distinct vision for capturing a unique and hopeful angle on motherhood challenges and experiences, and champion the core values of Kindred Mom. Writers in Residence are thoughtfully selected after an application and interview process.

Our next cohort will take shape in Winter 2018-2019. If you are a writer and you are interested in applying for this opportunity, subscribe to our writer’s list to receive the first word when applications are open.
