Life Story Writing

How Does It Work?

A Life Story is as much or as little of the recipient’s life story as you wish to record. It is written in the recipient’s voice, (in first person), like a memoir or mini biography. It is a keepsake for the family, as well as being a gift of respect for the recipient.

Your Life Story Writing purchase includes:

  • Initial consult between the commissioning person and the Life Story writer
  • Research on the period and significant events/locations etc of the Life Story recipient.
  • Formulation of interview questions
  • A gently guided interview with an experienced lifestyle journalist
  • One edit by the commissioning person or Life Story recipient, if desired
  • Up to 30 colour photographs included in relevant placing throughout the story
  • The professionally written, edited, and formatted Life Story
  • The final Life Story, full colour printed on finest-quality paper stock, beautifully packaged in an elegant, sturdy keep-sake box, and loosely bound so pages with future stories and photographs can be added if desired.

Imagine sitting with your grandmother, reminiscing on her amazing life, and recording it for your family history… Or perhaps you want to write your own life story – for others to enjoy or learn from, or simply for yourself.

Writing our Life Stories is fun! And it’s a great way to connect with a loved one – a long term project to do together, an experience which will create memories of its own.
