In September, I’m entering the Novel Writing Competition, the first 5000 words from the first draft of my work in progress, ‘Snakeskin and Failed Feathers’, to Mslexia, the only magazine where every reader is a potential contributor too.

We publish over 70 different names in every issue, so you might find your work appearing alongside work by leading authors such as Marian Keyes, Karen McCarthy Woolf, Monique Roffey or Daisy Johnson.

But Mslexia is not just a magazine. We’re also proud creators of the Indie Press Guide, a unique directory of over 700 independent book publishers and literary magazines. The Mslexia Minis writing guides, including the best-selling Poetic Forms and A Novel in Nine Steps. And our brand-new Writer’s Diary & Planner – designed to make 2023 your most creative year yet.

Then there are our annual competitions, which have taken the careers of many women writers to the next level. And an online Salon, where members can build a community and attend writing surgeries and Q&As led by top experts.
