About Brain, Child

“A good read is what Brain, Child is all about.” - The Washington Post

Brain, Child: The Magazine for Thinking Mothers, founded in 1999, is the only literary magazine in print dedicated to motherhood. Each issue contains personal essays, a short story, poetry, debates and news. Contributors have included Pulitzer Prize-winning novelists Jane Smiley and Anne Tyler, best-selling author Barbara Ehrenreich, and acclaimed writers Antonya Nelson, Alice Hoffman, Patricia Hermes, Virginia Holman and Susan Maushart.

In 2010, Brain, Child received the Utne Independent Press Award for Social/Cultural Coverage, and has been nominated for additional categories since then including General Excellence, Best Writing, and Best New Title. Individual essays, articles and fiction from Brain, Child have also won awards, including numerous Pushcart Prizes and mentions in The Best American Essays.

In 2012 Brain, Child was purchased by Erielle Media LLC. Since then the magazine’s footprint has expanded to include the launch of its digital edition for the iPad and its first special issue devoted to parents of teenagers. It also now has a new website and vibrant Facebook and Twitter communities. The Fall 2013 issue showcased the first redesign of Brain, Child magazine in its 13-year history. Brain, Child has also expanded its content network to include dozens of niche and consumer publishers such as The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, iVillage Australia and Macaroni Kids.

Brain, Child’s mission has stayed constant over the years. The magazine strives to bring together the many voices of women from different backgrounds, circumstances, and experiences in a way that provides mothers with insight and perspective into real issues.  Thirteen years after its launch, Brain, Child is still often referred to as “The New Yorker for Mothers.”

Brain, Child is distributed in independent bookstores, Barnes & Noble superstores, and select grocery stores around the U.S. and Canada. The magazine is also available for the iPad from the Apple Newsstand. Circulation stands at 15,000, with subscribers from every state and as far away as Sweden, Egypt, and Hong Kong.
