BIG & little: An Anthology of Age Play Dynamics
Edited by Sassafras Lowrey *
Publisher: Nazca Plains Corporation
Deadline: May 1, 2007
Payment: One Contributor Copy

Age play and those who participate in these dynamics have remained shrouded in misunderstanding despite the exponential growth of the larger leather community. “BIG & little: An Anthology of Age Play Dynamics” will begin to fill the gap in information by being the first non-fiction book to address the complexities and diversity of our community. “BIG & little” will foster dialogue within the growing age play community and provides an opportunity for “little ones” (boys, girls, princesses, etc.) as well as “big ones” (daddies, mommies, uncles, etc.) to talk about this very important and empowering aspect of their lives. It will also serve as an introduction for those unfamiliar with age play dynamics.

All those with age play experience are invited to contribute. Dynamics beyond the Daddy/boy, Mommy/girl norms (such as big sister/little sister, scoutmaster/scout) are particularly encouraged to participate. The anthology will encompass a range of perspectives, varying from individuals living in full-time dynamics to those who engage in occasional age play scenes. “BIG & little” will represent the diverse voices of age play community members across lines of race, class, gender, sexuality, geographic region and biological age.

Possible topics include but are not limited to:
Exploring the cultural misunderstanding as to what age play is (or ISN’T)
Letters to Daddy
Bedtime stories for little girls
Ruminations on the perfect Mommy
Personal accounts of the healing power of age play

Submissions should be between 1,500 and 2,500 words in length and previously unpublished. Submit your piece via e-mail in .doc format to BIGandlittle_anthology@yahoo.com. Multiple submissions per contributor are welcome. Please include a short biography and contact information with your submission. Submissions must be received no later than May 1, 2007; contributors are encouraged to submit early. All pieces published become the sole property of the publisher. Contributors whose work appears in the anthology will receive one free copy of the book.
