#SOmum Make Date: Weds 10 April 8.30 - 10pm

We would love you to join us on Wednesday 10 April from 8.30 - 10pm GMT (find world times here) for our next Mums' Make Date on twitter. We'll be chatting, sharing our stories, and making our own imaginary book covers.What book would you write about your mothering journey, if you only had the time...

Add #somum to your tweets for a chance to enter our competition to win a copy of the wonderful An Anthology of Babes (not yet on sale in the UK, so we're extra lucky, woohoo!).

An Anthology of Babes is an inspiring collection of writing and art about mothering, inspiration to cheer you on these cold Spring days...

All you need is a pen and paper, something to take a photo with, and a twitter account. If you feel like getting colourful, grab some paints, crayons or felt tips. If you fancy a bit of collage, grab some magazines, scissors and glue - whatever you've got to hand will be just perfect, don't worry.



What is a #somum Make Date?

It's a chance for mums to get together on twitter and tweet while we attempt to do something creative - like doodlingtaking a photomaking stuff or squidging plasticine.

We give ourselves some creative me-time and connect with other lovely mums. We do it every second Wednesday of the month. 

New friends are always very welcome. You don't have to be arty or creative, we're all about having a go for fun regardless of talent or experience. We would love you to join our community of brave supportive mamas doing uplifting thought-provoking downright silly stuff together to celebrate ups & downs of motherhood here.

If you just want to chat, that's completely fine. If you just want to doodle quietly and lurk and never tell us you're there, that's fine too. We're just happy you're making some time for you.
