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 All served up with a challenging selection of new poetry and prose submitted by published and unpublished authors.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 trial issue 49, the first since the redesign, Mary Hoffman chats to Lucy Coats about research, racism and Martin Amis; Louise Doughty charts the quiet catastrophe in the literary world as hundreds of respected authors are axed by publishers in pursuit of stellar sales; Clare Jay explores a new route to inspiration – dreamwriting; Mslexia surveys their readers about novel writing, and what they normally wear to write in (2% say nothing!).
In trial issue 43 Lynn Barber chats to Daneet Steffens about actors, mentors, interviews – and a most unsentimental education; Kira Cochrane on the perfect feature pitch, how to use research, professionalism, common sense, a bit of chutzpah and gentle persistence; and from fact to fiction, novelist Mez Packer writes about the pros and cons of writing what you know.
The redesigned magazine 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.
