“The Way She Carries Us” will be published in volume 13 of “Mom Egg Review,” and “Louisiana” will soon appear in “Southern Voice,” an online publication of “Deep South Magazine.”
“Mom Egg Review” is an annual literary journal by and about mothers and motherhood. The journal explores the experience of motherhood from diverse perspectives. According to the editor, Marjorie Tesser, “’Mom Egg Review’ tells important stories ignored or marginalized by other publications, and nurtures exciting literary talents.” The upcoming issue will be launched at a reading in New York City this spring.
“Deep South” is an online magazine covering the food, travel, culture, arts and literature of the South. Their mission is to connect the Southern states — and Southerners to each other — through their stories. Honaker’s poem “Louisiana” fits this theme by depicting a love for our state, despite its flaws and questionable reputation.
Honaker graduated from Louisiana Tech with her master’s in English in 2009. Her thesis focused on the work on Charles Dickens, and she also completed the e-certificate in technical writing. She teaches freshman composition and technical writing.
