What is #EnbyLife?

#EnbyLife is an online journal by and for non-binary and gender diverse people. For more info, visit the About #EnbyLife page.

When are submissions open?

Submissions to #EnbyLife are currently open until 31 May 2019. We also have several submissions call outs throughout the year. Follow our Twitter and Instagram so you can stay updated!

How do I submit my work?

Submit to #EnbyLife by emailing enbylife.submissions@gmail.com during a submissions call out period, with the subject line SUBMISSION: Title of your submission. If relevant, please also include content/trigger warnings at the top of the document or in your email.

Who can submit?

If you fall under the gender diverse or non-binary umbrella (e.g. genderqueer, gender fluid, agender, bi-gender, gender questioning, just to name a few) — we want your work!

What can I submit?

Poetry including text and visual poems, essays, non-fiction, short stories, flash fiction and micro fiction, comics, artwork and illustrations, audio such as slam poems and music, RPGs and text-based games, digital zines, hybrid and experimental pieces, AND work that doesn’t fall neatly into any of these categories. If you think we can put it on a website, send it our way!

Will I get paid?

Yes! #EnbyLife pays $20 (AUD) to each artist published.

#EnbyLife is funded through the generosity of the Gender Reveal Podcast Grant and Patreon.

When I submit, do I need to use my name?

You can use a name of your choice, a pseudonym, or remain anonymous. Totally up to you!

I’m cisgender, can I submit something to #EnbyLife?

No. We recommend seeking out other submission opportunities.

Why wasn’t my submission chosen for publication?

#EnbyLife aims to publish as many non-binary and gender diverse creatives as possible within our budget. Unfortunately we can’t publish every submission we receive, due to receiving a large number of submissions or because a creative piece isn’t the right fit for the journal on this occasion, but we always do our best to give helpful feedback on declined submissions.
