2007 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards Silver Medal Portfolio winner, Jeanette Anderson, will be published in issue 44 of the British Literary Magazine, Mslexia. Her poem "Untitled" will be part of the Skin-themed New Writing Section. As a quarterly publication, issue 44 will be available in January 2010. This is her second publication.
While in High School, her poem "Biographical Tenth of a Cento" (which won a Scholastic Art & Writing Awards Silver Medal in 2006) was published in issue 36 of the British Literary Magazine, Magma. Seamus Heaney and Billy Collins were featured in that issue.
Launched in 1999, Mslexia is for "women that write." Mslexia strives to address the difficulty that women face in the publishing world. Mslexia won the Outstanding Contribution to Literature (Magazines) Award in 2006 and was a runner up in 2008. Jeanette has always enjoyed the submission process, despite the prevalent rejection letters. She has been submitting to Mslexia for several years and--at twenty--is so ecstatic that she will be published.
