story to sell was set up to run alongside our established media agency photo-features.co.uk to help people sell their stories.

We helped Jill Hallett sell her shocking true story to Chat magazine.

When Jill contacted us she was nervous about selling her story. She’d been approached directly by many women’s magazines when her story first hit the headlines. But Jill wanted to be sure she was getting the best deal and asked us to sell her story for her. Her amazing tale of courage and bravery was published in Chat magazine

Frequently asked questions about selling a story

Do I have to be named and pictured to sell my story?

No, not always. In some circumstances a magazine might buy your story and agree to print it without identifying you. But you’ll earn more selling your story if you are named and pictured.

How much will I earn selling my story?

That depends on your story. Anything from £200 to £2000. There’s no set answer here, but we will always try and market your story to earn you the best fee.

How will I get paid for selling my story?

You’ll receive legally binding contracts confirming your fee in writing. Payment is made up to four weeks after publication of your true-life story. Payment is by cheque but bank transfer and cash can be arranged.

Will I have control over my magazine story?

Yes. We will be working on your behalf so you will undoubtedly have more control over the article than if you worked directly with the publication. Every story we sell we write and edit closely with you. You’ll even be given a read back before it’s published.

Do you charge me for selling my story?

A reputable journalist should not charge you for selling your story. We are able to provide our service free of charge because as the publications pay us a separate writers fee.

Why not sell my true story directly to a women’s magazine?

We’re independent writers so we can shop around on your behalf and ensure you accept the best deal for selling your story.

What do I do now if I want to sell my story to a magazine or newspaper ?

Get in touch today and talk to us about selling your true story. We’ll quickly let you know if we can sell your story and how much we can sell it for.

If you’re happy with what we can arrange we’ll work together until you’re happy with the piece and then when it appears we’ll ensure your paid promptly.
