Our Showcase section is a platform for promoting creative work by Solo Moms. We are looking for authentic, revealing and surprising work by Solo Moms or former Solo Moms in the form of short film, music, visual art and writing. We welcome work on any topic that makes us think, but are especially interested in creative expression that is inspired by the experience of being a Solo Mom. See below for more specifics.

ESME welcomes submissions by any and all self-identified Solo Moms: Please send no more than 2 entries at a time. We do not offer payment for work published or shown on ESME, but you retain full rights to your work. All work must be original and you must own the rights to whatever you submit.
