PoetMoms II is a Google Group created by Hannah VanderHart (@hmvanderhart) and Christina Xiong (@AzureXiong), and is intended as a support network for all writer moms of all genres. The name is intended to reflect on the work of Arielle Greenberg, who created and moderated the original poetmoms listserv. It’s a place for you to share your work, pics of your kids, upcoming events and opportunities, and need for a .gif pick-me-up/showering of encouragement. It’s a place for community and support, so we’ve got a couple guidelines:
- Be kind. Be respectful and supportive.
- Keep all posts of private nature (poems and writing, kids photos, need for support emails) confidential unless you explicitly ask the author’s permission to repost/share. This means no reposting/forwarding those materials.
- PoetMoms II does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, height, weight, physical or mental ability, economic status, veteran status, military obligations, and marital status, and discriminatory language will get the user a warning and possible removal from the group should the user not re-form their language.
