Welcome to the Mslexia Salon members area

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.

'A huge basket full of thank yous. not only did my pitch profit a lot from the thoughtful feedback you gave me during your “pitch surgery”, but one of the q&a events changed my life – and fairlight books have accepted my manuscript for publication.' Sophie van Llewyn

The Salon is divided into five different zones: the main Function Room, where our surgeries and events take place; the Noticeboard where you can check out latest job, grant and submission opportunities; a suite of Meeting Rooms, where you can seek out other writers, ask (and answer) questions, share your work and offer (and receive) feedback; the Library, where you can browse our collection of online resources; and the Cloakroom, where you can update your profile.

‘Thank you very much for the opportunity to be part of the online tutorial group. I have had four short stories accepted for publication since the group began and am still in touch with my group buddies by email.’ Elissa Soave
