Diary of A Single Mom, a web-based original series

diaryofasinglemom3-212x300Are you ready to discover a groundbreaking series?

Join Christy Harvey, the Mommy Muse, and special guest Dr. Nicol Turner-Lee for the launch of “Diary of a Single Mom.” Diary of a Single Mom chronicles the lives and challenges of three single mothers and their families trying to get ahead despite obstacles that all single mothers face, such as childcare, health, education and finances. This innovative series on pic.tv will inspire us to take action to improve our own lives while being compassionate with others.

Diary of a Single Mom stars Monica Calhoun (The Best Man) as Ocean Jackson, a single mother of two striving to keep her family afloat while working to fulfill her own ambitions of finishing her GED, going to college and opening her own business. Along her journey, she befriends and joins forces with two other single moms, Lupe (Valery Ortiz – The N’s “South of Nowhere”), a mother juggling different fathers for each of her two children while facing health concerns that will change her life and Peggy (Janice Lynde – “Letters to Dad”), a once married, wealthy 50-something who suddenly finds herself widowed, broke and guardian to her only grandchild. Together, the three women search for support and faith as they strive to triumph over the challenges of everyday life.

Diary of a Single Mom: Season 1 debuted on PIC.tv in 2009. The series is the winner of awards for Best Indie Soap and Best Guest Actor from the Indie Soap Awards 2009.

Also, join the Mommy Muse’s Mamapalooza partners, co-founders of Motherhood from Egg to Zine (and everything in between) literary performance group and online magazine.

On the Front Lines of the Mommy Wars with Leslie Morgan Steiner

Mommy Wars: Stay-at-Home and Career Moms Face Off on Their Choices, Their Lives, Their Families

Ever wondered why women waste so much energy judging other women?

mommy-wars-194x300Ready for a breath of fresh air?

Leslie Morgan Steiner, editor of the best-selling anthology Mommy Wars, joins us to help resolve the tension between mothers who stay at home to raise children and mothers who pursue careers outside of the home. We’ll explore the battle that rages inside so many women who struggle to feel good about being a mom, no matter what their choices are about work.

With motherhood comes one of the toughest decisions of a woman’s life: Stay at home or pursue a career? The dilemma not only divides mothers into hostile, defensive camps but pits individual mothers against themselves. Leslie Morgan Steiner has been there. As an executive at The Washington Post, a writer, and mother of three, she has lived and breathed every side of the “mommy wars.” Rather than just watch the battles rage, Steiner decided to do something about it. She commissioned twenty-six outspoken mothers to write about their lives, their families, and the choices that have worked for them. The result is a frank, surprising, and utterly refreshing look at American motherhood.

Ranging in age from twenty-five to seventy-two and scattered across the country from New Hampshire to California, these mothers reflect the full spectrum of lifestyle choices. Women who have been home with the kids from day one, moms who shuttle from full-time office jobs to part-time at-home work, hard-driving executives who put in seventy-hour-plus weeks: they all get a turn. The one thing these women have in common, aside from having kids, is that they’re all terrific writers.
