Fancy adding a notch to your writing CV? Mslexia are seeking stories, poems and scripts on the theme ‘Cooking’ for their autumn issue. They’re looking for stories of up to 2,200 words, poems of up to 40 lines, and short scripts of up to 1,000 words – and they pay for every piece they publish.

Making a meal can be an act of love and sensual pleasure – or an act of hatred and grudging resentment. It can also be a source of intense anxiety. Can I afford it? Will there be enough? Will they like it? Will it be on time?

Embrace your appetite and get submitting! 🥑🍒🌮🥒🥘🍆

Deadline: 4 June 2018
