How to reach 30,000 women writers

Mslexia was established in 1999 with National Lottery and Arts Council funding and was granted charitable status in 2019. 

Through its publications, social media platforms, and other activities, Mslexia is in direct and regular contact with over 30,000 women writers. 

You can reach them too, by advertising in our quarterly magazine, in our monthly newsletter, in our other print and digital publications, at our events, on our website and social media platforms.

Mslexia readers are highly educated, predominately ABC1 women of all ages who regularly submit their writing for publication, enter competitions, attend literary events, visit writing retreats and sign up for creative writing courses. Quintessential ‘heavy book buyers’, their interests also include: theatre, music and visual art; nature and the environment; travel, history and heritage; crafts, cooking and dining out.

Every year Mslexia helps Arvon reach an engaged, diverse and vibrant community of writers. It is without a doubt a core part of our advertising campaign.

Arvon Foundation

We have been advertising in Mslexia since 2014 and the service we receive is second-to-none. 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

We have been proudly advertising in Mslexia 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 keen to tap into services we provide. The Mslexia team do important work, and we hope to continue to work with them in the years to come.
