"I've tried to find out what mothering plus creativity looks like, not just in the first few years, but as part of a life story."

– Julie Phillips


Event: Writing & Parenting (online)

Please join us for this online conversation with nonfiction writer Julie Phillips, author of The Baby on the Fire Escape: Creativity, Motherhood, and the Mind-Baby Problem (W.W. Norton, 2022) and winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award.

What does it feel like to parent and write? Is it even possible? How did other writers, from Audre Lorde to Ursula K. Le Guin, approach parenting? What are the practicalities—and the emotional effects—of doing both?

During these two hours, Julie will speak to the challenges that mother-writers face—and how they have used their experience in their work. You’re invited to send in your questions in advance of this event.
