NonBinary Review wants 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.

Literary forms are changing as we use technology and typography to find new ways to tell stories—we love work that doesn’t fit neatly into any one genre, and we’re entranced by that which we cannot easily describe.

Each issue will focus on a single theme. Upcoming themes:

Issue #21: The Works of H. G. Wells
(closes 4/22/2019)

Issue #22: The Odyssey by Homer
(closes 7/24/2019)
