Mama Says Commercial Free Kids

On the heels of Kris U's post it seems like the perfect time to unveil the project Mama Says Action has in the works. We are starting a local chapter of Campaign for a commercial Free Childhood. I have been in contact with them and have some events and meetings on board. BUT because I want this blog to be only for creative work I encourage you to follow links to our Yahoo newsgroup for more details.Also Times Argus September first issue published my letter on this topic- check it out at library...

Mama is at work on line illegally- got to go

Mama Says Update

Thank you to Kris U for all her work on the blog. Yes of course I, Linda will keep cranking. I have been doing Mama Says for two and a half years now and some of the projects on the horizon are the most exciting yet...

Kris's departure means I will return the blog to its original intent as an online version of the print newsletter. In other words it is a showcase for creative work-- poetry, reflective essays, creative pieces of length (no maximum word counts, plenty of space). One of the features I would most like to revisit is the "Interview with a Local Mama" which was so popular in print. Please get out there and talk to a mama you love and write her up for us with pictures, art etc.

Some of the bloggy flash will remain in terms of sidebar but this has always been about the power of each mamas voice. I want very much to return to that essence now.

I can't wait to share with you the amazing projects the political action circle is working on. I can't wait to hear from you, in your words, simply.

With mama love, Linda P

Mama Says Update

So, You may have noticed that alot of the sidebar is missing. Mama Says is being overhauled as I write.

I feel I have done what I could for Mama Says and that it's now time to move on. Whoever would like to pick it up from here, is more than welcome. (most likely LindaP)

I will be moving to another site later in the month (here). In the meantime, I will be reorganizing Mama Says and building my new site. All of my old posts from Mama Says will be on the new site as well as new material.

To our subscribers: Do not fear! You will stay on as such to Mama Says.

All the writing will stay as is on M.S., all the archives will be there and everybody who is on will still be able to post.

I will update as new things come along.
