Always wanted to feature in a newspaper or magazine, or even on TV?
Got a story you’d love to share? Want to put a smile on someone’s face? Pay tribute to a loved one? Name and shame? Inspire, raise awareness, bring hope…? If so we’d love to hear from you. We write stories for the UK’s biggest national newspapers and women’s magazines, and the best part, we can pay you for your story. So drop us a line and let us do the rest… It’s that simple!
Who we speak to
We chat on a daily basis to your favourite national newspapers like the Daily Mirror, Daily Mail, Sun, Metro; and magazines like Take A Break, Chat, Real People, Reveal, Closer, Pick Me Up, That’s Life, Bella, Best, Woman’s Own, Woman, Fabulous, New, Chat It’s Fate, Fate and Fortune, Spirit and Destiny, Top of the Pops.
What we do
Once you’ve briefly outlined your story in our form, we’ll determine if the newspapers and magazines will like it, and give you a call for a chat. We’ll ask you for some photos to illustrate it then speak to these publications to see what they say. We keep you in the loop at every stage, always making sure you’re happy to proceed, and if you are, we’ll write up your story and read it back to you. We want you to be happy that the piece we’ve written is accurate. The newspaper or magazine that wants your story may wish to ask you some follow-up questions. Basically we act like a representative, speaking to the media on your behalf. We want the process to be as stress-free as possible for you, and should you decide that you don’t want to go ahead, we will always respect your decision. Any questions, we will help.
The newspapers and magazines we speak to buy stories so we’re able to arrange a payment for you. If more than one newspaper or magazine likes your story, they will bid for it. The one that likes it the most and offers the most money will run it. Sometimes we’re able to place a story with more than one newspaper or magazine and if that happens, we’ll arrange more than one payment for you. After your story has been printed, you will receive your payment. If a show like Good Morning Britain or This Morning sees your story and wants you on, we’ll arrange this for you too.
