NonBinary Review Apocalypse

web site

Deadline: February 1, 2021

NonBinary Review is a quarterly digital literary journal that joins poetry, fiction, essays, and art around each issue's theme. We invite authors to explore each theme in any way that speaks to them: re-write a familiar story from a new point of view, mash genres together, give us a personal essay about some aspect of our theme that has haunted you all your life. We also invite art that will accompany the literature. All submissions must have a clear and obvious relationship to our theme. Submissions with no clear relationship to the theme will be rejected.

We are open to submissions which relate to the idea of APOCALYPSE.

What we don't want: mushroom clouds, zombies, dystopian futures, or anything else we've already seen in countless books, movies, and television shows.

PROSE, WHICH INCLUDES FICTION, CREATIVE NON-FICTION, AND FLASH

NonBinary Review accepts fiction and creative non-fiction of up to 3,000 words in length, although shorter is probably better. Fiction should be double spaced, 12-point type, in Times New Roman in a Word document or text file. We do not accept .pdfs. Authors may submit up to 5 pieces of flash fiction, no more than 1000 words each, in this category. Please upload each piece as a separate document on this submission. Flash (fiction or CNF) is the ONLY category where multiple pieces related to the same theme may be selected for publication.

POETRY

NonBinary Review accepts poetry of up to 3 pages in length. Poetry should be single spaced, 12-point type, in Times New Roman in a Word document or text file. We do not accept .pdfs. You may submit up to five files with this submission, but each poem must be submitted as a separate document.


VISUAL ART
Visual art is now being accepted in a separate category. To submit visual art for consideration, click here.

ALL SUBMISSIONS

Your 50-word bio should be included in your cover letter. If your bio is longer than 50 words, it WILL be edited for length if your piece is selected. You may submit more than one piece, but each piece must be submitted as a separate document. A high-quality headshot (preferably not a selfie or out-of-focus photo) should also accompany your submission, although if you prefer not to include a photo of yourself, you may include any image you feel is emblematic of you.

PAYMENT
NonBinary Review pays 1 cent per word for prose, and a flat fee of $10 for poetry (singular poems or a suite) and $25 per piece of visual art, payable upon receipt of the signed publication contract. NonBinary Review accepts previously published work as long as the original publication is clearly credited. All contributors will receive a complimentary .pdf copy of the issue in which their work appears.

ALPHANUMERIC
If you are interested in your work appearing in our podcast, indicate in your submission that you are willing to appear in Alphanumeric. Pieces chosen for Alphanumeric will be recorded and be featured on our website as well as being included in the issue. Pieces chosen for Alphanumeric will not receive any additional compensation. All contributors will receive a complimentary .pdf copy of the issue in which their work appears.

All work may be edited for typos and punctuation.
