WELCOME TO MSLEXIA
Issue 82 has landed and it’s packed with insight into some amazing writers – Michelle Paver tells us about her Achilles Heel (or, as she prefers, Gordian Knot), Tishani Doshi opens up to Sandeep Parmar, Morgan Lloyd Malcolm tells us about how she got into scriptwriting, Konnie Huq tells us what’s on her bedside table and Irenosen Okojie gives us her top writing tip.
Other features include:

- Crime: an exploration into why so many romance writers successfully turn their pens to crime by Jane Corry
- Genre: a look at the rise of genre-bending fiction with Sophie van Llewyn
- Non-fiction: Alison Flood uncovers why the industry’s biggest appetite is for narrative non-fiction
