"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 The Disappointed Housewife

The Disappointed Housewife 

a new literary journal for writers, and readers, seeking something different.

Their Call:

“We like the idiosyncratic, the iconoclastic, the offbeat, the hard-to-categorize. Out of the universe of fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction, we want to attract work that plays with form and presentation. Work that’s not just outside the box but turns the box inside out.

We believe that imagination and the creative drive can guide literature toward a new stage in its evolution — a growth spurt. Multi-media, mash-ups, music, photography-as-writing: anything is possible.

As we like to say around here: Don’t disappoint the disappointed housewife.

Read our submission guidelines and send us your work if you think it will fit here. We’re listening.”

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We seek previously unpublished prose, poetry, and art that incorporate these characteristics in funny or sobering ways.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