To prove there’s more to writing than grit and grammar, there are currently six ways to submit fun stuff to Mslexia. Our limerick slot has closed, but our appetite for daftness continues. 

 

Writing nest  

Send a photo of the place where you write – your desk, armchair, café corner, bath – along with up to 50 words about why it works (or doesn’t work) for you. Pop along to Meet the Readers for an example.

Bear necessities  

Tell us about an object, ritual or creature that helps with your writing: e.g. teddy, terrier or tea in your lucky mug. Send a colour photo of your ‘necessity’, plus up to 50 words of explanation.

 

How to Submit

Submitting online

To submit, complete the form below this section and upload your submission document.

Submit Online

Submitting by post

Alternatively, send your entry by post to:

Mslexia
PO Box 656
Newcastle upon Tyne
NE99 1PZ

Please include your address, phone number and email on a separate cover sheet, along with the title of the work you are submitting. All submissions are judged anonymously, so please ensure your name does not appear on the submitted work itself.

Submit your work

This form is for writers submitting work for Mslexia magazine. If you are submitting several pieces, please use a new form for each submission. (There is a different form for competition entries that you can access via the Competitions area of the website.)

Your message

There is no need to include a cover letter with your submission, but you are welcome to use this space if you would like to tell us something about your writing or yourself, or to comment in any way on Mslexia. If we want to publish all or some of this for the ‘What you’re saying’ section of the magazine, we promise to contact you first to seek permission.

Upload your submission

All commonly used file types are acceptable, including .doc, .docx, .pdf, .pages, .txt, .rtf, .jpeg, .jpg and .png. If we are unable to read your submission, we will get in touch.

New submission categories

Some of our submission categories change quarterly; others every six months; and we refresh the entire magazine on an annual basis. Tick the box if you’d like to be kept in touch with any changes.

Errors occurred, please check your submission.
