How to sell your story to the press

You will get the best deal for selling your story from FamousFeatures – that is guaranteed.

We will sell your story directly to the editors of the national magazines and newspapers, in the right order, to ensure you maximise your income.  This is because some publications require total exclusivity, some will not follow certain publications, some are happy to buy ‘second rights’ or ‘third rights’, whilst some will pay to print your story after it has been used by almost everybody already.  We work with television companies if you would like to share your story on programmes such as This Morning and Good Morning Britain, and we sell stories to overseas magazines.

If you only wish to sell your story to one magazine or newspaper, we will auction it to the highest bidder.  Or, if you have a specific publication in mind, we can arrange that for you too.

Our service is completely free to you.  We are paid directly from the publication to source stories and write them in the specific set style of the magazine or newspaper.  You will also be paid directly from the newspaper or magazine upon publication, or in some cases you will be paid directly from our accounts department.
