NonBinary Review Wind in the Willows Anthology

June 21, 2018
NonBinary Review Wind in the Willows Anthology
 
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 and be featured on our cover. All submissions must have a clear and obvious relationship to some specific aspect of the source text (a character, episode, or setting). Submissions only related by a vague, general, thematic similarity are unlikely to be accepted.
 
We are open to submissions which relate to Kenneth Grahame's 1908 book The Wind in the Willows. Please bear in mind that we're looking for pieces that relate to the BOOK ONLY. References movies or television shows will not be accepted.
 
NonBinary Review pays 1 cent per word for fiction and nonfiction, 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. All contributors will receive a complimentary .pdf copy of the issue in which their work appears. Deadline for submissions - July 24, 2018.
