I’m Still Here!

After birthing a baby and selling a novel in one day, Mary finally understood why Kate, mother of two, kept falling asleep during writing group. I’M STILL HERE! is a podcast about making art after kids. In each episode Kate Tellers (The Moth) & Mary Adkins (When You Read This, HarperCollins) chat with artists—a filmmaker, a writer, an aerialist, a sculptor, and more—about challenges, discoveries, and new ways that we find the time to be creative as parents.
