About

Tangled Locks Journal is an online literary journal committed to sharing complex, well rounded stories, poetry and essays that define the experience and lives of women. Too often, women in stories are a plot device designed to move the male protagonist along on his journey. We welcome all authors with one caveat in mind — if you can sum up your female character in one line (or worse yet: one word), our publication is probably not for you.

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for all submissions.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
