Julia Rowell writes poetry about mommyhood, and anything else that strikes her. Sometimes, a line will repeat over and over in her head, knocking to get out, until finally, she will write that damn line down and a whole poem spills out slick with blood and tears. The hard part for her is cutting the umbilical cord, and watching the bullies move in on the playground. She stopped writing and trying to publish for over a decade, until she almost lost her mind from all the noise. Now she is feeling quite tranquil with a daily outlet.

Bullies beware—she’s a momma bear.
