Mother Body is an intersectional exploration of the trauma and agency held within a body defined by its potential to mother. As Mother Body unfolds, it tasks its reader to understand the expected and unexpected manifestations of motherhood, through menstruation and womb work, but also generational, societal, and literary mothering. With a variety of forms and modes, these poems unpack the experiences of a fat, black woman’s body while also manifesting joy, resistance, and celebration.
Diamond Forde's debut collection, Mother Body, is the winner of the Saturnalia Poetry Prize judged by Patricia Smith. She is a Callaloo and Tin House fellow, recipient of the Margaret Walker Memorial Prize and the 2019 Georgia Poetry Prize. Her work has appeared in Tupelo Quarterly, Ninth Letter, Massachusetts Review and elsewhere.
