"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Call for Submissions Love <3 FAWLT Magazine Seeking Work on Dependence & Other Flaws

Call for Submissions: FAWLT MAGAZINE

DEADLINE: For Dependence: March 15, 2018.

For all other faults: rolling submissions.

FAWLT magazine is an online, quarterly journal seeking short stories, poems, essays, photographs, and animated works that deal with human flaws.

Each issue of the magazine will focus on a single, undesirable characteristic, exploring such issues as: who is affected by it, the impact on individuals, in which circumstances it can be especially bad (or actually good), and any other aspect of the flaw that that may be worth investigating.

Their call:
We seek previously unpublished prose, poetry, and art that incorporate these characteristics in funny or sobering ways. Ultimately Fawlt hopes to offer an entertaining look at human frailty and a serious consideration of some of our more unpleasant traits. Please do not send more than three prose pieces or
five poems at a time.

Now actively taking submissions for their next issue: DEPENDENCE

We’re also considering submissions for other faults including:

~  PERFECTIONISM   ~   APATHY   ~   ARROGANCE   ~

However, as we are planning to release those issues in later quarters, our response to submissions in those categories might be slightly long in coming

While we have no problem with simultaneous submissions, please notify us immediately if your submitted work is published elsewhere

Guidelines:
EMAIL: Please send submissions to fiction(at)fawltmag.com (replace (at) with @)poetry(at)fawltmag, or artandphoto(at)fawltmag, depending on your category (replace (at) with @). Please indicate, in the subject line, which flaw your work addresses.
ATTACH: A cover letter.
IMAGES: May be sent via email as JPEG or TIF files.
PAYMENT: While we’re working on acquiring the funds necessary to pay our contributors, as of now, we can’t offer any formal payment.

Daily Prompt Love x 2

8 February 2018

I tell my students that writers don’t write because they have answers; they write because they have questions.

Make a list of your questions, what you wish you could ask other people, friends, family,  what you want to ask the world. If you could spray paint a single question on a public wall in ten foot tall letters, what would that question be? 

Make art inspired by or composed of your questions.

Self talk can be a major force for healing.

Daily Prompt Love <3 Pictures of Love

7 February 2018 

Woke up hearing someone sing this.

Make art about the Love in that photograph. 

from Photograph
Ed Sheeran
….
So you can keep me
Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans
Holding me closer ’til our eyes meet
You won’t ever be alone, wait for me to come home
Loving can heal, loving can mend your soul
And it’s the only thing that I know, know
I swear it will get easier,
Remember that with every piece of you
Hm, and it’s the only thing we take with us when we die
Hm, we keep this love in this photograph
We made these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Hearts were never broken
And time’s forever frozen still
So you can keep me
Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans
Holding me closer ’til our eyes meet
You won’t ever be alone….

Thinking a lot today about how the new emerges from the old. 

Go back to an old piece of writing, and use the last line of that as the first line of something new.
