Introducing Round 2: Spring 2014 Feature Writers

Become a Feature Writer

We’ve had an overwhelming response to our Casting Call for feature writers earlier this season and it’s been tough to narrow it down.

We’ve tried to cap it at twelve but we couldn’t.

We didn’t want to leave out a few favourites so we’ve expanded our new team of writers to SIXTEEN! If you missed it, here’s the first article that lists our first five feature writers.

We know here at Modern Mama headquarters that you will love our brand new line up.

So without further ado, here is the next round of six feature writers, (6-10) to be added to our growing list of fabulous women that will inspire, give you pause for reflection, offer words of courage and hilarity and most of all, bond us together on this journey into ourselves and motherhood.
