The Sell My Story team

If you’ve never spoken to the press before, it can be tricky to know where to start. We’ve put together a step by step guide on what you can expect when you sell a story to a newspaper or magazine.

Step 1 – Tell us 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 needs
Together we will agree the best way to handle your story, and what it will take to get it into print. We will decide which magazines, newspapers or television outlets you want us to approach.

Step 3 – Sell your story
We’ve been working with the editors of national newspapers and magazines for over ten years. We’ll use our experience and contacts to negotiate the highest possible fee for your story.

Step 4 – Write your story
You will work closely with a writer to ensure your story is told in your words, accurately and sensitively. It will not be published without your consent.

Step 5 – Get paid for your story
A written agreement guarantees your payment on publication of your story. Sometimes we can sell a story more than once to generate even more income.
