YOU (South Africa) updated guidelines.

South African magazine YOU have updated their submission guidelines. (I know the date says 2015, but I checked them very recently and they still had out of date information on them then.)

I think this bit is new too –
"NB! WE ONLY ACCEPT SHORT STORIES THAT HAVE NOT BEEN PUBLISHED IN OTHER SOUTH AFRICAN PUBLICATIONS OR ON THE INTERNET."

The photo isn't of you, it's of me!

  3. @Kath, it's around that mark but will depend on what exchange rate your bank are giving on the day you get paid.

  5. Does digital version of a UK mag e.g. People's Friend Special = published "on the internet" ?

  6. Good question. I'd taken it to mean on blogs and other places where it's publicly accessible, but they might well see it differently.
