Would you like to sell a story to the magazine that is willing to pay the most for your story (or do you have a particular or favourite magazine in mind)?
Sell a story to any of these publications…
SWNS is the UKs largest independent media agency. We supply real-life stories to all of the national women’s magazines.
If you would like to sell a story to a magazine, we hold a daily story auction to sell your story exclusively to the highest bidding magazine. You’ll keep 100% of your fee.
If you would have a particular magazine that you would like to sell your story to, we can also arrange that for you.
Once the story has been in the magazine, you have the option to resell your story to the second highest bidding magazine (known as second rights) – it’s totally up to you; you’ll stay completely in control. Following that, we can often find you other publication deals or even a television appearance on shows such as This Morning.
It’s important that you keep control of your story so don’t send it around to everyone. We are the UK’s most trusted press agency and we’ve been around for over 50 years. The more exclusive your story, the more you’ll get paid (magazines often won’t bid on a story if it doesn’t appear to be exclusive).
Once you send us a brief outline of your story (by filling out the form on the right hand side), one of our friendly and experienced writers will get back to you and let you know what it is likely to be worth. We can then put your story on our story auction (which goes directly to all of the magazine editors) and come back to you with firm offers. If you’re happy to go ahead, we’ll give you an interview over the phone or in person and you’ll soon see your story in the magazine (and the payment in your account).
Our writers can guarantee a full read-back of any article before it goes to print, so you can be sure to stay in control of your story and make any changes before it’s printed by the magazine.
If you have any questions relating to how to sell a story to a magazine, just drop us a line and we’ll be happy to answer any of your queries. You can contact us through the form on this page, or see our CONTACT US page for more information.
We can also sell a story to the national newspapers on your behalf, which is a slightly different process. You can read more about how to sell a newspaper story here: SELL MY STORY TO A NEWSPAPER
