Mslexia Call for Submissions: Memoir (and other things...)

Mslexia Magazine are currently seeking short (up to 2,200 words) narrative non-fiction submissions in the form of memoir for the New Writing section of the March 2013 issue of Mslexia.  Cast your mind years back to your childhood, or just a few hours back to last night - or to any destination in between - and send in a slice of your life.  Up to two submissions can be submitted.
Deadline: 10 December 2012.

There's no entry fee and Mslexia pay for all the pieces they publish.  Submissions are judged by a high-profile guest judge who introduces and comments on each piece in her selection - an invaluable addition to any author's CV.

MONOLOGUE: 'the hairdresser'
Especially for writers of script (but anyone is welcome to submit) send up to 200 words on any topic in a single character's voice. Mslexia are looking for monologues in the voice of a hairdresser.
Deadline: 14 January 2013

If writing a full length memoir excerpt doesn't appeal, why not try your hand at something smaller but no less perfectly formed.  Fans of new media are invited to submit A Week of Tweets about their writing and/or life - or to apply for a three-month 'residency' on the Mslexia Blog.  
Deadline: 14 January 2013

Finally if you'd like to advertise your writing group or promote your latest book, writing class, or blog, Mslexia have just launched a new Noticeboard section in the magazine, which will allow you to reach 27,000+ readers.  Prices start from just £20.  Contact Victoria on 0191 233 3860 or email:

That's it for now - it's over to you!
