Now in its third volume, the Anthology series Young Mother’s Voices aims to share the experiences of young women, as they express themselves and become published authors at the same time.
They are students of The Chiles Academy, a charter high school for teenage mothers, which also offers childcare and trains them in parenting skills. The young women try out many and varied themes, and often write about the mistakes they have made, countered by the wonderful gifts they have received in the form of their children.
