Family memoirs

Since before we could speak, humans have been swapping stories. Around campfires, over the phone, through books...

 

You've always wanted to record those family memories, but don't know where to start.

Why not start here?

Hiring a writer to facilitate gathering, collating and/or writing life stories means the job gets done. It also means family baggage doesn't get in the way! (Picture Mum's favourite ‘That street always reminds me' story or Grandad's hundredth telling of How I met Gran.) We ask, listen and record the biography with fresh ears and compassion.

Memoirs come in all shapes and sizes. There is no one way to write a memoir. How it unfolds will depend entirely on you, the storyteller.

Bespoke ghostwriting

With a ghostwriter at your fingertips, the options for getting your memoirs down are endless. To help navigate the best way to tell your story, here are a couple of questions for you to consider...

Do you want to write your memoirs yourself (DIY) or do you want to get someone else (GSE) to write it for you?

 

 

Do it yourself - DIY:

You’ll choose this option if you’re keen to write, even if you have never written before (or not in a long time).

You’ll choose this option if you have the time and discipline to put pen to paper (or finger to key, these days!)

You’ll choose this option if you think writing could be a good outlet for your creativity.

Or you’ll choose this option if your budget limits how much you can pay a ghostwriter.

 

Get someone else - GSE:

You'll choose this option if you don't have a penchant for writing.

You’ll choose this option if you just want the damn thing done!

You’ll choose this option if you’re happy to invest in the time it takes to record, transcribe, write, edit and check your story, proofread, lay out the text with photos or recipes or drawings, etc. and coordinate the printing of the book.

We also offer a combination of the above if you want to try your hand at writing, but are unsure if you can pull off a whole book! Call us to help you define your needs.
