INTERESTED IN SELLING YOUR STORY OR PICTURES? HOW IT WORKS...

SWNS is the largest press agency in the UK.  Each day, every major newspaper and magazine calls us to find out which stories we have for sale.  Our service is free to you and because we auction your story to the highest bidder we guarantee you the highest fee (if you want to read more about how much your story is likely to be worth see the How Much will I Make page.  Unlike many other agencies, we also have the ability to place your story in every single magazine and newspaper.  This is how it works:

  1. We auction our stories to the editors of the national press every day.  Once you have completed the short form on this page, we will get back to you with the highest offer for your story.  You’ll get the most money by selling it exclusively to one publication (we can sell it to other magazines and newspapers after it has appeared).
  2. If you’re happy with the offer and would like to proceed, we’ll have a quick interview over the phone (or in person if you prefer) to get the details of your story.  We’ll write up your story and then read it back to you at your request before it appears in the press, so you have full control.
  3. Once the story has been published and you have been paid, we can then sell your story again, guaranteeing you even more cash. If you decide to, we can then put your story onto the ‘newswire’ so that all magazines and newspapers can use it, and you’ll be paid for the column inches that it takes up.
