"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

Friday Call for Submissions Love! K’in Still Reading for Inaugural Issue

K’in wants to read your beautiful work! 

Submission Details

Prose: 5000 words or less, open to content, form, structure.

Fiction: We welcome short stories of all shapes and sizes, from the mind-blowing traditional story to fiction that blurs the lines between forms, genre fiction, experimental fiction, etc. We also welcome flash and micro fiction.

Nonfiction: We’re looking for slow burns in a world of hot takes, questions asked instead of answers proved. We welcome a wide variety of nonfiction—traditional essay, narrative nonfiction, micro/flash memoir—and encourage experimentation, though not at the expense of factual truth. Too many true stories go untold, and we want to offer space to honor those voices.

Poetry: 3-5 poems, open to content, form, structure. Please don’t forget the power voice, sound, and time can have in poetry.

For all submissions, simultaneous submissions are permitted, but please let us know. To withdraw one part of a submission, please add a note in Submittable so that the information is instantly available to all editors. We will not process emailed withdrawal requests.
Experimental, traditional, playful, prayerful, celebratory, challenging: human—try us. Show us a new way to tell one of the millions of stories under that glorious sun.

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We seek previously unpublished prose, poetry, and art that incorporate these characteristics in funny or sobering ways.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.

Special Call for Submissions Love <3 Dove Tales Seeking Work Exploring Empathy In Art

Dove Tales

Our DoveTales journal is a manifestation of the Writing for Peace mission to promote writing that explores the many aspects of peace. One of our goals is to expose young writers to a diverse collection of thoughtful works by both established and emerging writers, as well as our Writing for Peace advisers.

DoveTales also features works by the winners of our annual Young Writer Competition. The journal will be released on July 1, 2018. There is no fee for submission, but please read our guidelines carefully.

Theme: The theme of our 2018 issue of DoveTales is Empathy in Art: Embracing the Other. As in our previous issues, we encourage contributors to take a broad view of the definitions of “empathy,” “art,” and “other” within the context of peace.

  • The reading period begins October 1st, 2017, and ends March 15th, 2018, for a publication date of July 1, 2018
  • We prefer previously unpublished work, but if you feel your published piece is especially relevant to our theme, and you own the rights to it, please give us all the particulars of its publishing history so we can be sure to properly credit the previous publisher.
  • Work must be submitted electronically through Submittable.  Please include a 50-word third-person biography, and make sure your contact information and mailing address are current.
  • We are happy to accept simultaneous submissions, but please inform us immediately if your work has been accepted elsewhere.
  • Contributors maintain all rights to their work, but grant Writing for Peace the right to publish work in both hard copy and e-book formats. Contributors will receive one complimentary hard copy of the journal. Should the piece be re-published later, we would be grateful for a mention.

The theme of our 2018 issue of DoveTales is Empathy in Art: Embracing the Other. As in our previous issues, we encourage contributors to take a broad view of the definitions of “empathy,” “art,” and “other” within the context of peace.
