Keeping up with My Weekly guidelines is like chasing a moving target. But these aren't too different from the last lot, and they are a nice magazine to work with. Good luck all!
Edited 9/3/10 to add - I believe My Weekly are still not taking submissions from authors they have not previously bought a story from. Which is disappointing.
