is a series centered on how Jess Burnquist, mother, writer, and teacher is "making out'  as she processes adolescent issues amid the glare of parenthood and the shadows of nostalgia. 

Kirsten Sundberg Lunstrum created Rattle & Pen    out of a desire to establish a public space for those conversations she was having with other creative moms about how to live in the liminal zone between artist and mother.
