Jeff MitchellPoetry/Fiction Editor/Contributing Writer
Jeff is a 26 year old writer, cartoonist, photographer, and self-proclaimed Jeff-of-all-Trades. The pen as his weapon of choice, he strives to bring about an era where people are judged by the size of their hearts and souls and not by their height and weight. With a mixture of fact and comedy, he wants to show all people of all sizes the beauty of the human form and bring an end to discrimination of size.
Anita WilliamsFood Editor/Contributing Writer
Anita is a proud SSBBW Suburban Black Chick who graduated from a very decent Boston-area university with two poverty majors and is currently pursuing a Master's degree. A Renaissance woman in the 21st century, she has a myriad of interests and enjoys spending time thinking, laughing, and with family & friends.
Toni TailsArts and Entertainment Editor/Contributing Writer
Toni Tails is a 36 year old full-time artist (http://tonitails.com) and single, home schooling mom of an awesome Autistic kid. She uses her art to promote the beauty of all kinds of bodies, including SSBBWs such as herself. She loves spending time with her family, belting out some mean karaoke, reading, and being as silly as humanly possible. (Maybe more!) She has a degree in Nerdism , is a raving Whovian, and often makes poor attempts at quoting films and T.V. shows at inopportune moments. She wants all SSBBW magazine readers to know, "Bowties are cool!"
