About

Welcome!

I’m Sherisa de Groot, the creator of Raising Mothers, the online literary magazine and community delving into the realities of parenthood for those often left out of the discussion. I’d love to have your support so I can continue to reach people who are looking for a place that reflects them on a deep level.

Raising Mothers is an online literary magazine created by and for Black and brown femmes and other marginalized parenting communities of color.

Raising Mothers publishes work that redefines and returns power to the parenting and parented experience for historically marginalized persons in their own voice. 

Raising Mothers represents all walks of life and amplifies the voices of the underrepresented. Far too often, Black and brown and trans voices are either silenced or used as a token. Here we are the standard.

What will your support help accomplish?

Raising Mothers exists as a website, social media accounts, talks, courses and community building activities offline. All of these things have always been created and maintained in my “spare” time from my freelancing then full-time salaried job and full-time parenting. Now that I’m back to freelancing full-time, your support will allow me to devote more time and resources into keeping all of those spaces fresh and updated, and creating new content for followers to explore. This will help pay writers, illustrators, admin costs, keep our lights on and also help us grow. Raising Mothers has always been ad-free, and it will continue to stay that way. 

If you’ve found any benefit from the published work, talks, courses or content shared, please consider helping me reach my goal of being able to truly run Raising Mothers full-time.  

^^ 
I can’t/don’t want to make a monthly donation, I just want to give a one-time gift. Is that possible?

Certainly! Our main focus is to build up our Patreon account, but we will never turn you away. If you'd like to make a one-time donation to Raising Mothers, you can do so right here. We’ve also activated the option of paying annually upfront, saving 10% at every tier. 

Thank you!!
