Tangled Locks Journal just published our Fall Issue. In our second issue, we feature new works by VJ Knutson, Dominique Margolis, Stephanie Parent, Tacheny Perry, Niles Reddick, and R.L. Terrell. You can read the issue online here.
We are also seeking submissions for our October MoonBite.
MoonBites are designed for social media and we partner with our writers to promote the works on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
We are looking for very short works of poetry, fiction and nonfiction that we will pair with images. It’s short notice but if you have a work that you feel creates vivid images in the mind of your readers, please consider submitting.
Puréed politics is as unpalatable as over-cooked carrots spun through the food processor.
Talking heads in 1950s suits telling us what to think is so retro (and not in a good way like that mid-century modern you’ve been eying).
If your words are sharp, short and fire rapidly, think for a moment: have you heard this before, in exactly this way. If you have you know you have been memified.
Let everyone know, our brains are not empty waiting to be filled with their memes that crowd out original thought. Imagination needs the space that the memes take up. So throw them away like moldy cheese.
We have been playing it too safe. Think of your worst ideas.
The worse the better.
For brilliance rises not in the safety of acceptable ideas that carry no risk. Brilliance bursts into life from outrageous ill conceived unconventional thoughtS.
