The Lifted Brow; The Rule of the Father

I wrote a personal essay for The Lifted Brow online; The Rule of the Father


The Rule of the Father is a reflection on patriarchy, mental health, and becoming a parent. The piece is the result of nine months of writing and editing (not to mention 20 months of not sleeping).

This essay is confessional, and by far┬áthe rawest thing I’ve ever worked on. I don’t think it is a pleasant read. I was anxious about its publication, but having spoken to a few parents, particularly fathers, I am becoming aware that it can be a common experience and the essay may be helpful.

The Lifted Brow has been formative on my writing and it’s an honour to have a piece there.
