When you’re a kid, playing with toys is just one of those things that you inherently understand. Regardless of the era you grew up in or your economic status, it goes without saying that before you even knew how to talk, you had a collection of objects that you regularly used to create imaginary worlds. And if you’re lucky enough to remember that strange time when tiny plastic figures meant more to you than most people, chances are you’ve got at least a couple good stories.
Specs, a journal of contemporary arts and culture put out by Rollins College, is currently looking for creative work on the subject from students and non-students alike for their upcoming third issue. In addition to accepting works of non-fiction, fiction, and cultural criticism, they’re also accepting visual art, poetry and any other pieces that “blur the genre boundaries.” Full details on submitting can be found on their website and submissions will be accepted up until February 15.
