How much will I be paid?
When we first chat about your story we will be able to use our experience and give you an idea of what to expect for your story. But we will not have a definite price until we have approached all the leading titles and offered your story for sale. We will then let you know what the top bid is and seek your agreement to proceed.
Fees can vary widely depending upon the type of story, but as a general rule you can earn between £200 and £500 for a story filling one-page in a magazine. More commonly, our stories fill two or more pages, in which case you could expect up to £1,000. But if your story is the main feature in the magazine, it could fetch up to £2,000. Exceptional stories, particularly if they are currently in the news, can be worth much more, and we have achieved payments of £10,000 and more for some of our clients.
Whatever the offer you can be certain that it’s the best deal in the marketplace for you.
Payments are made by cheque or bank transfer and are private. No one need know you have been paid if you don’t want them to. For those who don’t have a bank account, cash payment can be arranged.
When will I be paid?
Newspapers and magazines usually pay about four weeks after publication.
How can I be sure I will be paid?
You will receive a signed contract from us detailing exactly how much you will be paid following publication.
