Daddy: a cultural anthology (submission)

DADDY: A CULTURAL ANTHOLOGY (dad ·dy) Whether you use the term daddy or daddy issues or maybe even zaddy, the word has seen a recent cultural resurgence. We want to know what it brings up for you. Love it? Hate it? Grossed out by it? Does it remind you of Freudian theory? Does the phenomenon of young women calling their boyfriends daddy make you uncomfortable? Does it bring up associations with the kink community? Or maybe the term is actually a trigger word for you. For survivors of childhood trauma, it could be extremely distressing. Whichever is true for you, we want to hear your personal responses. Whether that is in the form of poetry, fiction, essays, or visual artwork, we want to know your own reflections and meditations on the word daddy. The selected works will be published in an extensive anthology by Grey Borders Books.
