Mother’s Milk Books is a small, independent press which publishes high quality, beautiful books for adults and children which aim to normalise breastfeeding and empower parents.



This inspiring publisher hosts an annual writing competition which is a great opportunity to take some time to explore your creativity and put into words some of your emotions, memories and experiences of parenting.


This year the theme of the competition is The Story of UsĀ in a family context.

I love this idea as it is really a springboard to explore so many aspects of the parent ~ child relationship.

Poetry and prose are welcomed and there is even a children’s poetry category.

The closing date of the competition is 18th January 2015.
