“Maybe we’re finally realizing that not having a matriarchy means that nobody has ever really had a mother, a whole full-functioning human being.” – Sophia Shalmiyev

Shalmiyev’s work has appeared in Literary Hub, Guernica, Electric Lit, Vela, The Rumpus, Portland Review and other publications.  Mother Winter (Simon & Schuster, 2019) is her first book.
