Are you ready to lift your writing to the next level? Here are six ways Mslexia magazine can take you where you want to go:

1  Open submission slots

Appearing in Mslexia is one of the best ways to get onto the publishing ladder. There are 14 ways for subscribers to submit writing, and we pay for everything we publish.

2  Opportunity knocks

Every issue includes 55 writing competitions and 70 magazines and publishers on the lookout for fresh voices. You’ll find a home for your work in no time.

3  Amazing writing

The best new voices in fiction, poetry and non-fiction appear in Mslexia – which means literary agents and editors trawl the pages looking for bright new talent to sign. Could you be next?

4  Banishing creative blocks

Lack of time and confidence are issues for many women writers. Mslexia looks at ways of outwitting the practical and psychological gremlins that undermine your muse.

5  Industry insights

Can creativity be taught? Are there too many literary prizes? Can fiction change the world? Issues that matter explored by people who know what they're talking about.

6  The Mslexia tribe

A subscription is your passport to a dynamic tribe of women attending groups, hosting salons, writing blogs, publishing anthologies, posting reviews… we know you’ll fit right in.
