If you would like to sell a story to Take a Break magazine or any other publication, you’re in the right place. You can simply send us your story by completing the story valuation form on this page.

Take a Break magazine is the UK’s most popular weekly women’s magazine that comes out every Thursday. The magazine prides itself on its sensitive approach to telling your stories. Take a Break looks for real-life stories about ordinary everyday women, not celebrities or TV stars. The magazine will consider any story from love, personal triumphs, tragedies, stories about your children, and also fun, bizarre and bonkers stories.
It is important to have realistic fee expectations. Take a Break pays up to £2,000 for stories. However, please note that story payments vary considerably. The average payment for a story is between £300 and £500 for a page spread, but can be less if you are appearing as a case-study or your story takes up less than a page. The maximum fees are reserved for sensational and rare stories, but our job is to negotiate your fee and ensure that you get the maximum amount possible.
Important: Like many top publications, Take a Break likes to print exclusive stories only. You may seriously jeapordise your fee or payment by sending your story to competitors, touting it yourself, or speaking to other journalists. Please do not send your story elsewhere.
