Issue 68 of Mslexia is guest edited by Cathy Galvin. Her agenda asks whether ‘the room of one’s own’ is too small – are women writers still afraid of stepping into the spotlight? We also present the Mslexia Pamphlet Competition 2015's winner and runners-up with feedback from judge Amy Wack, and a wealth of new writing on the theme of ‘birds’, chosen by guest judge Gillian Allnutt.

Dive into an interview with Lionel Shriver, find tips on how to keep going from Young Poet Laureate for London Selina Nwulu, and enjoy features including Michèle Roberts on how writing about sex liberates the creative process, Vanessa Gebbie on the joy of trying different genres and Gemma Seltzer’s two-page guide to the best writing getaways.


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 All served up with a challenging selection of new poetry and prose submitted by published and unpublished authors.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.

Issue 66 of Mslexia is guest edited by Mary Hoffman. On Mary's agenda how the silent takeover by men of the top jobs in publishing has happened – and why it matters to us all – which Danuta Kean investigates. There's also a whirlwind of new features: Jenny Alexander gives practical exercises for unlocking creativity, Naomi Elster urges writers not give up their day job, and Sue Gee helps writers to give their work the committed concentration it deserves.

All this, plus an interview with Louisa Young, and the announcement of the winner of Mslexia's 2015 Women's Short Story Competition, and a sample of some of the shortlisted work.
