PF – Call for Submissions to Mslexia Magazine. Theme: “Ghosts”

March 6 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Limited Demographic: Submissions are restricted to women.

For Issue 98 we’re looking for pieces about hauntings, and welcome or unwelcome visitations from beyond the grave.

Mslexia was set up to support women writers and to showcase their work. We welcome submissions in English or English dialect. The majority of our submission categories are open to anyone who self-identifies as a woman, regardless of background or location.

There are 17 ways to submit, from a four-line poem to a 3,000-word lead article, from a 300-word bedtime story to a 700-word memoir performance piece – so there’s bound to be something to suit your kind of writing. Including big-name commissions and as-yet-undiscovered newcomers, we publish over 60 women in every issue.

Scroll down to explore our different submission slots.

We’ve done our best to describe what we’re looking for, but nothing beats seeing actual examples in print. So please consider buying a sample copy of the magazine before you submit. Every reader of Mslexia is a potential contributor – and vice versa.

You can submit here via the website, or by post to Mslexia, PO Box 656, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE99 1PZ

If you are submitting online, you will receive an automated email acknowledgement that your submission has been received. If submitting by post, please enclose an SAE or include an email address if you would like to receive an acknowledgment.

All entries are read anonymously, so please do not put your name or contact details anywhere on the text pages of your entry. (This information should be restricted to your online Entry Form or to a cover sheet for postal entries.)

The file types we accept are: .doc, .docx, .rtf, .pdf, .txt, .pages, .odt. We do accept image files, .jpg, .png etc., for our Eyeverse, Writing Nest, and Bear Necessities category, but please ensure the image is of print-quality (300dpi or above).
