Event Details

The Mslexia Women’s Short Story Competition is back for its eleventh year. Not only will the winning writer get £3,000, they will also have the prestige of being published in Mslexia, a credit shared with writers like Costa winner Angela Readman and novelist Peggy Riley. In addition, there is the opportunity to spend a week working on their writing at the stunning Moniack Mhor retreat, and mentoring with an editor at Virago – an experience that money can’t buy and one that could really help you take your writing to the next level.

The competition is open to women of any nationality from any country, and welcomes stories of between 300 and 3,000 words in length (not including the title).
