Call for Submissions: NonBinary Review and Zoetic Press

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 #13: - Urban Legends and Rumors 
Guest Editor: Kolleen Carney (editor in chief of Drunk Monkeys)
(closes 5/1/2017)
Guest Editor: Carina Bissett (editor for Timeless Tales)
(closes 7/31/2017)

Zoetic Press is also putting together an anthology due out winter 2017. NOTE: This anthology is NOT RELATED to NonBinary Review. Its pay structure is different than NonBinary Review's.
The past few years have brought the injustices suffered by people of color into sharp relief. Not just because people of color are being victimized and killed, but because when people of color rightly bring attention to the realities of their situation, they are shouted down by white people, and their experiences erased. 
This puts people of color in a better position than anyone to write about dystopian futures, and we want to hear about those futures. Take the events of the present to their logical conclusion. Introduce a new catastrophe that makes things worse, if possible. Tell us about the superpowers we will have to develop to survive. Tell us the story of our future with yourself as the lead character.
This anthology will be open only to people of color.
