Fatal Flaw: “Ritual” Issue
Deadline May 7 (must be received by this date). Online literary journal Fatal Flaw seeks submissions of unpublished poetry, fiction, essays, photography, and artwork for Issue 4, whose theme will be Ritual: "In this issue, we want to break down ritual and pick apart its pieces. What does it represent to an individual and to the collective? What is its purpose? Do these innate practices stave off chaos, or do they at times help incite it? And what happens when ritual is disrupted or, even worse, used as a means to a malevolent end?" Send 1-3 poems, maximum 6 pages total; one prose piece, 1,000-7,000 words; one flash fiction/essay, 100-1,000 words; or 1-5 artworks, via Submittable. There is a $3 submission fee. Editors say, "Fatal Flaw publishes unexpected, topical writing and photography that considers the world through a cracked lens. Show us the fatal flaw and the beauty inherent within it."
