Writing Life Stories Workshops and Gift Pack

Give the gift of respect and relationship as you write Life Stories together. Or, write your own.

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.

The Writing Life Stories Gift Pack comes with:

  • Attractive Interview Cards, designed out of my years of experience writing in the genre.
  • A Writing Life Stories Workshop Video, which will guide you through the whole process of writing a Life Story, step by step. It has inspiration on how to draw out the memories; a “how-to” use of the Interview Cards; and tips and tricks for recording the story – even for our youngest, early writers. The online video is yours forever.
  • The accompanying stationary gift pack will be personalised to the Life Story recipient, and their writing partner, if not alone. You let me know who is involved and I will personalise a pack just for you.
  • A “take-everywhere” notebook is also included – it is a vital part of the Life Story process, as you will discover in the workshop video.
  • Pens, pencils, novelty erasers and a smart book mark are also included – applicable to the gift recipient and writing partner if there is one.
  • You can use your Creative Kids Voucher, meaning the the package is free!
  • Postage is extra.

Professional writing and editing of your Life Story work after you’ve completed it is available. It’s best to discuss with me prior to starting on your Writing Life Stories gift pack, if you think this may be something you’d like. Quotes for the cost are indivudual to each project, feel free to email if you’d like to discuss this – felicity@awaywithwords.net

If you don’t wish to write the life story yourself at all – I can do the whole thing! More information here: Have your Life Story written by professional writer.

“Documenting my dad’s life story is something that I have always wanted to do, but never had the time to do it and had no idea where to start. Felicity took care of everything!  The only thing we had to do was think about anything specific we wanted included in his life story and the rest was up to whatever my dad wanted to share. Dad was surprised at how much he enjoyed the experience. He found Felicity easy to talk to and whilst he was a bit nervous to start, soon felt comfortable and no doubt could have talked to her all day! The story that Felicity wrote was so wonderful. She used his words and expression and was able to craft it into a perfect reflection of my dad’s life. She even unveiled details of his life that I had never heard before! I am thrilled to have my dad’s life and memories captured in one place and it is something I will treasure forever.  PS Mum is next!!!”  

“Thank you so much Felicity, this is just what we envisioned and I’m sure it’s importance won’t be truly clear for many years to come yet, but we love Dad’s story! We appreciate your time, effort and patience.”
