The Mslexia Writer’s Diary is back! Our theme for 2018 is blue-sky thinking. We’re looking at creativity: where it comes from, what it is, how to access and optimise it – and follow it through to a complete piece of work. Throughout the year, some of our best creative writing columnists will be challenging you to experiment with ideas and subject matter that will help you explore the outer reaches of the imagination.

The Writer’s Diary is an essential for any creative woman on the move; part diary, part writer’s resource, part notebook. It is filled with blank pages for your own notes, nuggets of writerly wisdom and fortnightly reading recommendations from top authors, and an indispensable directory listing annual competitions and festivals. Practical features include a ribbon bookmark and stout elastic to keep extra papers secure. It’s the perfect year-round companion for every woman writer.

All for just £13.99 (plus p&p).


Estimated delivery time: the Diary will be available to be sent from October.


In partnership with: Anam Cara, Bare Fiction, Circle of Misse, Gold Dust, Global Words, Green Ink Writers’ Gym, The Literary Consultancy, Notting Hill Editions, The Poetry School, Tŷ Newydd, Word Factory, and The Writers’ Workshop.
