Mslexia question

Hi all,

I'm sure I've read on here that someone has been published in Mslexia in the past? I have submitted a piece of prose. I wondered how you find out whether they have accepted it for publication?

It felt like I had put a little piece of my soul in an envelope and posted it to them. I hate the wait to see what they thought of it.

I did get my SAE back. It is "Motherhood" smile. That's great; thanks for your help.

Thank you for letting me know. I'm pleased it got picked up.

I've never submitted anything before, and the more I think about what I sent, the more doubt I feel.

I'm just about to start a creative writing course that I hope will give me some more confidence, but I have so many doubts about whether I'm any good. It is very frustrating!

Thanks smile. It's nice to hear that courses work for people. Good luck with your work too.

Good luck with it, Makiko. I've also submitted but don't think I'll get published. Have been a guest blogger for them for the last three months, which has been great! And got my name known...which is only really any good if my writing's good, though!

Punk - that's cool! I aspire to that!

Well, you can only keep trying, Makiko. I feel the same about Mslexia - brilliant magazine.

That's exciting, Dandy - what was it they published?
