9 rea­sons to sub­scribe

The London Magazine - - CONTENTS -

Expert voices

Our con­trib­u­tors’ list reads like a Who’s Who of women’s lit­er­a­ture. Au­thors, lit­er­ary agents and ed­i­tors pass on ad­vice and ex­pe­ri­ence. ‘In­valu­able – one of the main rea­sons I sub­scribe to Mslexia’

Sub­mis­sions wel­come

There are 14 ways to sub­mit – in­clud­ing po­etry, flash fic­tion, jour­nal­ism, script. Many women have been pub­lished for the first time in Mslexia. ‘I love the mix of su­per well-known women and un­knowns’

Amaz­ing writ­ing

The best new voices ap­pear in Mslexia. Im­merse your­self in the kinds of work ed­i­tors and agents are look­ing for. ‘The stan­dard is in­cred­i­bly high – I have cried many times over the po­ems and sto­ries’

Ban­ish­ing blocks

Lack of time and con­fi­dence are is­sues for many women writ­ers. Mslexia looks at ways of outwit­ting the grem­lins that un­der­mine your muse. ‘Re­ally in­sight­ful ma­te­rial rarely seen else­where’

Opportunity knocks

Ev­ery is­sue in­cludes 55 writ­ing com­pe­ti­tions and 70 magazines and pub­lish­ers on the look­out for fresh voices. ‘Bril­liant in­for­ma­tion – a one-stop shop of op­por­tu­ni­ties’

Monthly up­dates

Your sub­scrip­tion buys a collectable quar­terly mag­a­zine plus the reg­u­lar email Lit­tle Ms: a smor­gas­bord of jobs, com­pe­ti­tions, news, and fun. ‘I love lit­tle ms – it’s so… perky’

Food for thought

Can cre­ativ­ity be taught? Are there too many lit­er­ary prizes? Why do women hes­i­tate to sub­mit their work? Is­sues that mat­ter ex­plored by peo­ple who know what they're talk­ing about. ‘ Mslexia is happy to con­front im­por­tant and dif­fi­cult is­sues’

The Mslexia tribe

A sub­scrip­tion is your pass­port to a dy­namic tribe of women at­tend­ing groups, send­ing out sub­mis­sions, host­ing sa­lons, writ­ing blogs, pub­lish­ing an­tholo­gies, post­ing reviews… What do you want to do? ‘Keeps me in touch with fel­low writ­ers and helps me feel that I'm nor­mal’
