As always, we’re being inundated with requests from newspapers and magazines, looking for people with stories to tell. So if you’ve ever thought: “Maybe I should sell my story” check out this list:
* A national magazine wants to know why people find it so hard to let go of electrical items. They chuck out other clutter but simply can’t part with old mobile phones or digital cameras.
* A weekly women’s magazine wants to speak to a woman who has had an abortion after IVF. It follows recent news that 80 women a year abort a baby conceived through IVF.
* Another weekly magazine is looking for real-life case studies of sibling rivalry: Stories of major disputes between brothers and sisters, of siblings at war, fallings out, rivalry over loves, competitiveness and more.
* A women’s magazine is looking for a man who lost loads of weight, underwent plastic surgery or had a gastric band for a big white wedding – while his bride was none too bothered.
* The BBC wants to talk to a young shopping addict (no older than 25) who would be interested in talking to them about their problem.
* Another TV company is seeking young couples, preferably aged 16-17 who plan to wed soon.
If you have a story to tell – and a story to sell – that fits any of these criteria, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
