Mslexia Short Story Competition 2012

March 13, 2012

Mslexia is a cracking writing magazine aimed specifically at women, as is this competition. The Mslexia short story competition has always been a thorn in my side: why, in the age of Facebook and Twitter and YouPorn, create a competition that’s exclusively snail mail? Who has the time to go to the post office? No, wait. Who has the energy to go to the post office? I have nails to paint, here. Anyway, this year entries via the web are accepted, although this is something I only discovered late last night, hence the rather late-to-the-party heads up. Oh well – there’s always next year.
