Presenting the freshly reincarnated Mslexia – the same soul, but housed in entirely different body. Issue 69 comes with new submission slots (with two for subscribers only), more opinions, more interactivity and more opportunities, including added advice from editors, agents and decision makers.

In Issue 69 of Mslexia, editor Debbie Taylor wonders whether too many awards are spoiling the glow of winning the prize, Annabel Abbs tells us how she devised her own creative writing MA – and got her novel published as a result, and Ayisha Malik argues for Muslim chick lit (it’s not all bullying and arranged marriages). 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 ‘monster’, chosen by guest judge Juliet E McKenna.

Explore the world of oral storytelling in an interview with Jan Blake – and how to perform better yourself in a feature by performance tutor Sarah Myers. Learn Costa Prizewinner Frances Hardinge’s Achilles Heel, and discover TS Eliot winner Sarah Howe’s inspiration (a willow-pattern plate).

In terms of practical advice, take a peek at agent Juliet Mushen’s pitch surgery, Gemma Seltzer’s take on Writing in the World (working with dementia patients), and pages and pages of opportunities and special ‘insights’ into the minds behind the mags, the competitions, the grants and the theatres.

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 All served up with a challenging selection of new poetry and prose submitted by published and unpublished authors.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

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.
