Welcome to the magazine for women who write
Read by top authors and absolute beginners, Mslexia is a quarterly masterclass in the business and psychology of writing.
What’s new in creativity and publishing, expert advice and inspiration, debate and opinion, extraordinary poetry and prose, plus unique directory of 60 competitions with closing dates pending and 60 editors and publishers on the lookout for fresh talent – all packaged up in a collectable 84-page perfect-bound magazine.
The majority of our readers subscribe to the magazine, to be sure of nabbing a copy in time to follow up all those opportunities before their deadlines, but Mslexia is also available in 38 indie bookshops and boutique stockists.
We redesign the magazine every four years to keep it up-to-date and relevant to your evolving passions and needs. Here are some of the regular features in the latest reincarnation:
