NonBinary Review is open for submissions on the theme of "old friends."
There's an old poem that goes "Make new friends / But keep the old / One is silver / The other gold." There's a reason why the idea of childhood friends is so popular in books, television, and movies: the idea of someone who's known us for most of our lives and still likes us enough to want to be around us is tremendously attractive. Old friends don't even have to be human - our pets, favorite books, geographical locations, cars, even food can be considered an old friend. But "old friend" isn't necessarily a good thing. We've all had friends who aren't exactly great influences in our lives, and the longer we know them, the more influence they can exert.
We're looking for speculative takes on old friends - the weird, the outrageous, the mysterious. We're NOT looking for buddy stories, sweetly nostalgic reunions with childhood school friends, or anything else that might appear on the Hallmark channel.
All submissions must have a clear relationship to our theme and be submitted as a jpg., .png., .tiff., or .psd file of 300dpi or greater (accepted pieces must be PRINT QUALITY). Submitters may include up to five pieces per submission, but each must be a separate file. NonBinary Review pays a $25 flat fee for visual art, or $50 for pieces chosen as cover art.
We have different teams evaluating poetry, prose, and art. If you submit to the wrong genre, your submission will be declined.
