Save the Date! January 24th - Motherhood: From Egg to Zine (and everything in between) performs in Seattle!

What do a hippie nudist turned reclusive writer, a goat-milking belly dancer, a hip-hop loving, booty shaking realist and a woman who “conceived” six children over the phone have in common?

They are all in different stages of motherhood, and each have a story to tell.

Corbin Lewars, Christy Cuellar-Wentz, Monica LeMoine and Christina-Marie Wright are the founding members of Motherhood: From Egg to Zine (and everything in between), an inspiring literary performance group for thinking parents, and those who want to be. They are also respectively the nudist, goat milker, booty shaker and child magnet. The foursome will tell all and share their views on motherhood and creativity at two performances on Saturday, January 24, 2009.

Play Matters (, located at 7720 Greenwood Avenue North, will host the founders plus poet, playwright and prose writer Ann Teplick and Jack Straw writer and relation/ship memoirist Janna Cawrse Esarey for readings and “Q & A” at 2:00 p.m. (Children are welcome!) A second, expanded performance will take place at the Richard Hugo House (, located at 1634 – 11th Avenue, at 7:00 p.m., where other area zinesters, writers and musicians will be joining the cast. The show will feature belly dancing and music, as well as readings.
