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.
An opportunity to share the amusement, bemusement or torment of your submitting experience – e.g. ‘They used someone else’s name’, ‘My agent went AWOL’ – as a service to fellow mslexics. Up to 100 words – anonymously if you prefer!
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.
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
To submit, complete the form below this section and upload your submission document.
Submitting by post
Alternatively, send your entry by post to:
PO Box 656
Newcastle upon Tyne
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.
