Fill out the STORY VALUATION form to get your story valued

If you have a story that you think is suitable for a magazine or newspaper, you can get it valued, here, for free.  Just tell us a little bit about your story by completing the form on this page.

How to fill in the STORY VALUATION form

You don’t need to send us the whole story.  Just stick to the main points (a list of what happened will suffice at this stage).

This form is for valuation purposes only and we won’t publish, share or use anything you send us until you give us the go-ahead.

All we need is a brief idea of what your story is about (For example, you could say something like: I lost 10 stone after my husband dumped me for being overweight following the birth of our children).

The more simple you make it, the easier it will be for one of our team members to understand what your story is about and provide a valuation for you based on the sale of similar stories.
