I came across one today called mslexia aimed at women, I know there are others. In your opinion are they helpful, worth a read and would you recomend any?
I stopped reading "writer's magazines" a long time ago. The same information is merely rehashed in a different way. Also, the information is too generalized. Instead, find other resources and apply them to your task. For example, I'm writing a screenplay about mercenaries who are paid by a megacorporation to rescue hostages. My research is specifically geared to that end. Whether it's poetry, fiction, non-f, whatever, you need to know your subject -- as detailed as possible. Writer's mags are good for libary reading and not much else.
I long ago gave up buying Writing Magazine, to me it was turning into a womans magazine, even the shops were displaying it on the 'women's interest' shelves. This weekend I went into my local newsagent, there was Writing Magazine next to the photography magazine I went in for. It had two pics of men on the front, has it changed its ways. I bought it on impulse, took it home, no different than before, the only bit worth reading was a half page article by Gordon Wells: Sell Your first Article. The Idea. first of six. As much as I like Gordon Wells, I doubt that I will buy the next 5 issues. £3.70 a go for half a page each time? nah.

Even though the system, as currently configured, worked in the case of the Orlando Terrorist, if one of the more popular gun regulations had not been stopped by the NRA & friends, how many people, now dead, would have been alive? One of the more sensible and less intrusive regulations...
