RANTS IN THE DARK

Wellington mother, writer and The Spinoff Parents editor Emily Writes has struck a chord with her raw, honest and funny look at parenting.

With a huge following on social media and in print, Emily regularly faces down online trolls and “well-meaning” finger-waggers, while still managing to advocate for tired mothers everywhere – mostly at 3am.

Emily and Cindy Batt discuss her sudden life turn, what parents need, and the privileges and perils of writing on the internet.
