Fatal Flaw Literary Magazine

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Fatal Flaw is an international online magazine publishing unexpected, topical writing and photography that considers the world through a cracked lens. Show us the fatal flaw and the beauty inherent within it.

We welcome submissions from writers of all backgrounds – from the emerging and unpublished to the established – and especially encourage submissions from those who identify as persons of color, multiracial, indigenous, LGBTQIA+, disabled, and anyone belonging to a community of underrepresented voices. 

In addition to fiction, nonfiction, and photography, we are thrilled to announce that we’re now accepting both poetry and flash fiction
