Mslexia attracts an audience of engaged, educated and highly active women writers.

For literary organisations, there is no better target demographic to market to.

We have been able to introduce our postgraduate courses, short courses and annual writing competition to a highly targeted market and have benefitted hugely from the results.’ – Manchester Metropolitan University

‘Advertising with Mslexia is a rare delight. Easy, flexible – can I say “forgiving”? – and, with exactly the right audience for us, effective, too.’ – Faber Academy

Mslexia is the UK’s leading quarterly creative writing magazine, with a circulation of 9,000+ paid subscribers and an estimated readership of 27,000.

Our website attracts 50,000 hits each month, and our 30,000 social media followers are extremely dynamic and responsive to our content.

‘It was an easy choice for us to advertise in the magazine and we have been proudly doing so for years, reaching their community of committed women writers who are increasingly, thanks to Mslexia, clued-up about the worlds of writing and publishing and often keen to tap into services like those we provide at TLC. Marketing is about more than campaigns and data; it’s about a shared belief in what we do for and on behalf of writers. The Mslexia team do important work, and we hope to continue to work with them in a variety of ways in the years to come.’ – The Literary Consultancy

‘I assure you that none of the sentiments below are hyperbole. I have been advertising in Mslexia since it began as a magazine. I always admired the lovely, clear layout and classy covers, and the respect with which they treated their readers, and the writers they support. Their values come across in every aspect of the endeavour. As an advertiser I have always found the Mslexia staff to be informative, careful, supportive – a dream to deal with. Long may they bring this superb magazine to the public.’ – Fish Publishing
