The Mslexia Salon is a virtual space where you can take part in a writing surgery, quiz a top author or editor, join a discussion about anything from finding a crime agent to staging a poetry event – or browse a treasure trove of jobs, opportunities and ‘how-to’ primers and workshops, from formatting a play script to writing a synopsis.


This is where our Salon events take place, including writing surgeries and workshops, Q&As with authors and publishing professionals, coffee mornings, writathons – and our famous Agent Extravaganzas.
