Matthew Abbott,                          Features Editor

“When I decided to sell my story, approaching the newspapers and magazines direct felt intimidating. Matt and his team were friendly and genuine. As they were based locally, a writer called Claire interviewed me face to face. They handled my story from start to finish and I was given a read back before it was published – They couldn’t do enough for me.” Lorraine Siddle, Leeds.

Sell a story to the press

Whether you have a real life human interest story to sell to a magazine, a breaking news story for a newspaper, an amazing photograph, or a video, you can use our free service to ensure you’re getting the best deal.  Not only is our service free, we are completely independent and there is no obligation.

Simply use our story valuation form to find out how much your story is worth and we’ll contact the national press for you to see who wants to take your story and how much they will pay you to print it.


Why use North Features

North Features is part of the UK’s largest independent press agency, which is made up of regional offices around the country.  We are unique because most press agencies are based in London, and whilst we have a London office too, local stories are handled by local people.  There are only a small number of press agencies based in the North of England and we’re the biggest and best.

This means your story is dealt with by people who understand you.  You can contact them directly and even speak to them face to face if you wish.

Although we are happy do handle stories from anywhere in the UK, we typically cover Leeds, Sheffield, Hull, York, the whole of Yorkshire and Lancashire, and elsewhere in the North.
