Over the past few months, we’ve been lucky to have three talented young journalists working for My Weekly – and we’re keeping them very busy! This week Jenna looks back at the long and varied career of retiring actor Robert Redford, Tom is exploring Dundee – a city on the up – and Hannah gives us the lowdown on that most tricky of modern purchases, the mobile phone. For me, it’s great to see the next generation of writers emerging. I hope you enjoy their work – and indeed the whole magazine.
