January 15, 2013 (WILTON, CT) -- Brain Child: The Magazine for Thinking Mothers will relaunch with a Winter 2013 issue after closing its doors back in July. Purchased by Erielle Media LLC based in Wilton, CT, Brain, Child is now available on newsstands and will also make its debut on mobile devices, including Apple’s iPad. Hot topics in the come-back issue include a feature story, “Playing God,” about religion and children, and essays on babies and Body Mass Index (BMI) and adopting foster children.
Erielle Media’s Marcelle Soviero is Brain, Child’s new Editor-In-Chief. An award-winning writer, author, editor and mother of five, Soviero had been a long-time subscriber of
Brain, Child. “I started reading Brain, Child when my first child was three, and I haven’t stopped reading it since,” says Soviero, who bought the publication after it announced its final issue last summer. The magazine’s rebirth has been enthusiastically applauded by its worldwide readership.
Founded in 2000, Brain, Child is the largest literary magazine dedicated to motherhood. Each issue contains personal essays, fiction, poetry, news, book reviews and an in-depth feature story. “Our readers refer to us as ‘The New Yorker for Mothers,’ says Soviero. “We bring together the voices of women from different backgrounds and circumstances in a way that provides readers with insight and perspective.”
The Winter 2013 relaunch issue includes its trademark literary fare -- original essays, fiction, and cartoons. In addition poetry has been introduced for the first time since Brain, Child’s inception and a new section “Double Take” showcases two essays from two different authors on a similar subject. In addition, Brain, Child’s new website will include original web-only content not found in the print magazine.
Brian, Child kicks off it’s rebirth issue with the feature story, “Playing God,” by Tracy Mayor, which delves into the need -- or lack thereof – of religion in our children’s lives. Mayor, author of parenting-humor book, Mommy Prayers, puts forth studies and statistics on both sides of the debate. Additional content includes essays by Patricia Hermes, award-winning author of more than fifty children’s books, and Catherine Newman, popular columnist and author of Waiting for Birdy.
