I am currently offering free advice over at lydiajones.hubpages.com or at www.lydiajones.co.uk and follow the link - on how to write for and get published by the women's magazine market.
I have had over 100 short stories published here and abroad and my career took off after winning a Writers' News comp. I have recently published an e-book "For A Smile" which reached No 2 in Amazon Short Stories Bestsellers Chart.
This series of articles is offered in the spirit of helpfulness to other writers out there and although hubpages is a monetized site I am earning nothing from it as I don't have a Google Adsense account. So please stop by and check it out. I hope it helps! :)
