We’ve recently launched our Christmas website, www.sellmystory.co.uk/christmas, which has several opportunities to help you earn some extra cash.
But we also need your Christmas stories.
Right now, every mag is looking for an UNUSUAL, SHOCKING, DRAMATIC, INSPIRING, or HEART WARMING CHRISTMAS STORY for the FRONT COVER of its Christmas special edition.
Basically we need a strong story with a few twists and turns and above all a Christmassy angle – if it is a shocking story which happened at Christmas that will be enough!
For a front cover story you are likely to get between £1000 – £3000….and for anything else from a short to a double page spread you are likely to get between £300 and £1500.
To give you some ideas: –
Christmas dinner saved my life – about a girl who suffered with anorexia and spent her Christmases in hospital. After being told she would die if she continued the way she was going she decided to change her diet and was determined to get well enough to enjoy her first Christmas dinner with her family instead of elderly hospital patients!
