What is #EnbyLife?

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

When are submissions open?

Submissions to #EnbyLife will be open from 14th-31st January 2019. We will also have other submissions call outs throughout the year.

How do I submit my work?

Submit to #EnbyLife by emailing enbylife.submissions@gmail.com between 14th-31st January 2019 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, gender non-conforming 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, essays, non-fiction, short stories, flash fiction, comics, artwork, audio and video work, hybrid and experimental pieces, work that doesn’t fall neatly into any category.

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, nor can we give feedback on declined submissions. This is often due to receiving a large number of submissions, or because a creative piece isn’t the right fit for the journal on this occasion.
