The Ship Moms Project is a collection of stories about ship crew moms and the wonderful mixed nationality babies being brought into the world, all around the world. Ship moms from over 30 countries and 10 cruise lines have already participated in the project.
The project's selected stories will be compiled into a creative nonfiction book focusing on the strength of 'ship moms' who made it work, against all odds. Some stories are beautiful and heart warming while others are complicated and heart wrenching.
The project was developed in 2017 by a Canadian past crew member and Executive Director of the Writers' Alliance of Newfoundland and Labrador, Jen Winsor. Jen conceived her little boy Gabriel on Royal Caribbean's Enchantment of the Seas in the Bahamas with her Brazilian partner.
