After a brief hospitalisation, my mother passed away last year. During a grief filled autumn, I partipated in a ‘micro memoir’ writing workshop with Meg Pokrass. Unsurprisingly, I wrote a few pieces about my mom, one of which has been published by the wonderful Hippocampus Magazine, whose tag line is ‘memorable creative non-fiction.’ I’m touched by the number of people who have shared and/or commented about the piece on Twitter and FaceBook. It seems to resonate with many. You can read ‘How to Say Goodbye to Your Mother’ here.
*UPDATE* For each issue Hippocampus Magazine designates one contribution ‘Most Memorable.’ I’m so touched that ‘How to Say Good-bye to Your Mother’ has now received this honour.
