Brain, Child Magazine

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Brain, Child is an award-winning literary magazine for mothers. Founded in 2000, our mission is to bring the voices of women of different backgrounds and circumstances together on the printed page, on our website, and in our online communities. 

We are excited by great writing. It makes our day when we hear from an established writer or publish an author for the first time. We believe our writers are the lifeblood of our publication and strive to publicize and promote their work through our website, Facebook (240,000+ fans), Twitter and Pinterest, platforms. We respond within eight to ten weeks. We welcome follow up emails if by chance you do not hear from us.
