About

What could Mslexia mean to you? Just like the word itself, it means women’s writing (ms= woman, lexia=words). Our publications have everything you need to take the next steps on your writing journey.

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.

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.

We are a vibrant, ambitious and growing organisation, commissioning work by prominent authors as well as talented newcomers. We aim to provide a high-profile platform for new and established voices with every copy of the magazine. Since the magazine was launched in 1999, Mslexia has become the magazine for women writers to submit to. If you want to take your writing more seriously – or have some serious fun with your creativity – subscribe to Mslexia.
