Zoetic Press wants art and literature that tiptoes the tightrope between now and then—we are actively reading submissions for both NonBinary Review & Unbound Octavo.
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—for work that doesn’t fit neatly into any one genre, we’ve created a separate category to properly evaluate submissions of a hybrid or experimental nature.
Each issue of NonBinary Review is focused on a single theme:
Issue #5 (reading period closes April 1, publication June 2015): Robert W. Chambers’ The King in Yellow
Issue #6 (reading period closes June 1; publication August 2015): 1001 Arabian Nights
We are a paying market–1 cent per word for prose/hybrid work, $10 flat fee per poem, and $25 flat fee for art.
Please note that at present, the Zoetic app is accessible through iPad & iPhone only, with future updates to include Android versions. When submitting your work, please note that if selected for publication, your work will appear in electronic form only. Please download our free app to familiarize yourself with our content and unique publishing model! http://ow.ly/xj6fa
For more detailed guidelines, please expand the guidelines box of the genre you’re submitting to on our Submittable page.
Unbound Octavo is a collaborative publication, with each issue featuring a set of “interlocking” stories created by authors who may never have otherwise “met”—we are reading stories which interlock into the current story published on the website—every six weeks, a new story will post online and we’ll be reading stories related to the new posted story. UO’s word limit is 1,000 words for interlocking stories.
To read the current story we’re looking for which we’re seeking interlocking stories, please visit www.unboundoctavo.com

Unbound Octavo is a paying market, $25 flat fee per piece of art or flash fiction!
