As always, the magazine is packed with information and inspiration. Editor Debbie Taylor examines what makes bestsellers so addictive, Lucy English looks at the ever-expanding world of spoken-word performance, and Fanny Blake explains how best to pitch to woman’s magazine. Having difficulty finding your voice? Take a look at Claire Wingfield’s advice on how to keep writing when you, er, aren’t. Caroline Sanderson interviews non-fiction superstar Kate Summerscale, and Flash Fiction judge Kit de Waal talks to Danuta Kean about her own publishing journey. All surrounded by poetry, flash fiction and creative non-fiction from our own Mslexia readers – writing that will make you laugh, cry and shudder.
