a story to tell
We'll help you tell it.
That story's been bubbling away for a while. If not on paper or in a digital file, it can be found in the back of your mind ...
You're right. It's time to get it out.
At A story to tell, we help writers, businesses and families get their stories down. No matter if your story is thoughts scribbled on a page, a series of blogs or a fully fleshed out manuscript, our writers, editors and story coaches have the breadth and depth of experience to guide your precious words to publication.
Engage our storytellers' ear and editors' eye for detail to ensure you’re telling your richest, most memorable story.
From workshops on craft
to advice on publishing,
and everything in between,
we'll help you get it done!
You can write. You know that. You're proud of your efforts thus far. But your current project is giving you the heebie jeebies. There's (at least) one bubble of anxiety that needs popping!
You need a companion, a guide, a muse, a professional story coach who can be supportive, honest and encouraging at once.
At A story to tell our practising writers, editors and story coaches understand the writing life. Our compassionate team offers appraisals, feedback and guidance for works of long and short fiction, non-fiction and poetry.
We have a whole suite of services for writers. Click below to learn more.
Through story, we remember, connect, even heal.
The ancient art of passing stories from generation to generation is alive and well. It's about talking, listening, being present. Being heard.
So when’s a good time to start the ball rolling?
It’s never too early to collect these memories for posterity. Families can invest in writing or collating stories for parents’ and grandparents’ birthdays or family reunions. Memoirs can celebrate a wedding anniversary, a birth or a life well lived. They can mark generational change.
You’ve got something to say,
but don’t know where to start.
Why not start here at A story to tell?
Perhaps you've started, but then got busy or waylaid or bamboozled by all of your (brilliant!) ideas.
You might have a first draft you're unsure about.
No matter the state of your efforts so far, we can help you ascertain the strengths, areas for improvement and possible next steps for your writing project. With us around, you'll get it done.
As experienced, professional writers and editors, we listen closely to understand your needs and your unique offering to the world. Then we map out a brief and get on with the business of writing or editing your story.
We’ve got an eye for good content, an ear for personal style and the brain for untangling and making sense of other people’s ideas. We’ve also got strong stomachs! We tackle all sorts of topics.
