Mslexia tells you all you need to know about exploring your creativity and getting into print.

No other magazine provides Mslexia’s unique mix of debate and analysis, advice and inspiration; news, reviews, interviews; competitions, events, courses, grants. All served up with a challenging selection of new poetry and prose submitted by published and unpublished authors.

Mslexia is read by top authors and absolute beginners. A quarterly masterclass in the business and psychology of writing, it’s the essential magazine for women who write.

In issue 64 Guest Editor Viv Groskop has done a fine job of tackling issues important to her – and to all writers: getting noticed, paid and connected. Viv demystifies the world of literary festivals and explains how to get on the programme (whilst avoiding being paid in fruity preserves). And there's guidance on turning a page of text into a mind-bending performance – plus why writing for free is a feminist issue. Not to mention some unusual ways of exploring character (false moustache and a sock down the trousers anyone?)...

Plus, Alex Clark has nabbed an interview with the absurdly busy Sadie Jones. Julia Blackburn introduces a selection of poetry and prose new writing on the theme of ‘ancestors’, and we discuss what went horribly wrong for Elif Shafak.

Every issue of Mslexia includes regular features on how to write a bestseller, leading poets on the making of a poem, creativity exercises, analysis of publishing trends, professional manuscript editing, advice from top agents – PLUS our unique 11-page directory of latest writing opportunities, including 60 competitions and grants and 50 publishers and magazines looking for new material.
