Welcome to Sell My Story

Sell My Story is the country’s leading agency for selling your story to a magazine or newspaper.

Over the last ten years our team has helped literally thousands of clients get their story published.

We do much more than negotiate fees for our clients; we have our own in-house team of experienced writers to discuss your idea with you, and then write it in the appropriate style and tone.

Above all, we understand how important your story is to you – especially on sensitive issues. That is why we consult you at every stage of the process; we ensure you approve every word of your story before it is published.

The extensive contacts we have in magazines, newspapers and television, together with our reputation, mean we can usually negotiate the best possible fee on your behalf. Our own fees are paid direct by the media.

We’ve put together the following step-by-step guide to give you a better understanding of the process.

Step 1 – Submit your story
You can do this either by filling in the story submission form on this site or, if you would rather, by calling our offices and talking personally to a consultant. Either way , this is in complete confidence.

Step 2 – Discuss your story
We advise on the best markets for your story and if you agree we begin the marketing process.

Step 3 – Negotiations
In most cases, we hold a media auction in order to achieve the highest possible fee for our clients. Sometimes we can sell a story more than once to generate even more income.

Step 4 – Writing the story
A key part of our role is to ensure your story is told in your words, in a style that meets with your absolute approval. It will not be published without your consent.

Step 5 – Payment
A written agreement guarantees your payment on publication of your story.

Can I choose which magazines my story appears in?

We think that the best approach is to pitch your story to all the magazines and newspapers. But if there is a title that you particularly like or dislike we’ll be happy to accommodate your wishes.
