NonBinary Review {published by Zoetic Pressseeks art and literature that "tiptoes the tightrope between now and then. Art that makes us see our literary offerings in new ways. We want language that makes us reach for a dictionary, a tissue, or both. Words in combinations and patterns that leave the faint of heart a little dizzy. We want insight, deep diving, broad connections, literary conspiracies, personal revelations, or anything you want to tell us about the themes we’ve chosen."
Payment: Semi-pro (meaning 1 cent per word to 5 cents per word, probably closer to a penny a word, since they’re being coy about it).
Theme for issue #20: Submissions that related to the first 3 volumes (16 stories) of the Clive Barker series Books of Blood.  Deadline: January 23, 2019.
Theme for issue #21: Submissions that relate to the best-known works of HG Wells: The Time Machine, The Island of Dr. Moreau, The Invisible Man, and The War of the Worlds. Deadline: April 22, 2019
