Mslexia: Short Fiction Exercises

This, by Laura Fish, has just gone up on the Mslexia site for women who write. It's all part of the online run-up to the Mslexia Short Story Competition, which is to be judged by Tracy Chevalier, and which closes on January 25th 2010.

For my own part, I've been commissioned to contribute a series of five articles on the art of rewriting poems for the Mslexia website, due to be published March 2010.

The Mslexia articles will feature nuggets of wisdom from other established poets alongside my own suggestions. Watch this space for further details!

Dear Jane

Are mere men permitted to read Mslexia?

How did you do in the 'pool (geddit?) by the way?

Best wishes from Simon

Are 'mere men' allowed to read Mslexia? Yes, if they can get hold of a waterproof copy.

I didn't exactly do myself credit in the pool. A few splashes, but then I dived. Must be a bit rusty, I guess. There's another contest in the spring though ...
