This creative nonfiction project examines the relationship between work, motherhood, creativity, and advocacy. With increased quarantines and illness, mothers in particular have felt more strain to provide care to their children while also trying to maintain a professional life. This has often created an absence of these mothers in the professional sphere, and their creative work is performed from home, sometimes with the support of their employers and sometimes without. While supporting their families, students, colleagues, and own creative pursuits, mothers often have the additional burden of advocacy given their proximity to so many who have been negatively impact by Covid-19, and also given their increased empathetic muscle as nurturers. This manuscript will include vignettes of home and work life that illuminates the increased responsibility of The Mother during Covid-19.
