Sell my story: Step 1

Get in touch with one of our friendly writers

Call us for a confidential chat on 0121 551 1004 or email us on so we can find out about the story you want to sell.

Please remember, everything you say is completely confidential at this point, so do not worry, nothing will be published without your permission. We understand that some stories can be of a sensitive nature, so we are more than happy to meet you face to face if you’d prefer.

If you change your mind and decide that you do not want to sell your story, there is no pressure to commit.

Sell my story: Step 2

Packaging and pitching your story

Once you have decided to go ahead with selling your story, we will prepare a summary of your story and approach the magazines and newspapers on your behalf to find out who’s interested in publishing your story and how much they can offer you.

Our writers work directly with all the national real life women’s magazines and national newspapers, so we aim to secure you multiple deals to maximise your fee.

We work hard to secure the best deal for your story, and even hold an auction of your story, encouraging magazines to bid against each other to secure you the highest fee.

Final readback and finished article

Once we have an offer for you, and you’re happy to continue with selling your story, it will be written by one of our writers, who will then read the story back to you, to ensure you’re happy with it.

We want to ensure the messages you wish to get across are met while selling your story through us. If there are changes you wish to make during the readback, then we are happy to accommodate.

Our priority is that you are 100% happy with the finished story. Here at HotSpot Media we make sure YOUR story is told YOUR way!
