Life Writing Starter Pack

This includes the following:

  • Regular face-to-face (in person/Skype/FaceTime sessions); email and phone calls throughout the process of completing a 2500-word life story.
  • The email correspondence includes emailing June your drafts for feedback.
  • The 2500-word life story is considered complete once it has been worked to a  publishable standard.
  • PDF file with your story sent as an attachment to your email. You may wish to keep it for yourself, print for yourself and to give to family, or submit for publication in journals and collections.

The Starter Pack offers people a clear indication of what the life writing story process involves. It helps clarify whether taking on the novella (Standard Pack) and book-length (Premium Pack) are indeed something you wish to undertake.

For some people, this life writing starter package achieves their goal of capturing what they want to express about a particular life-changing event. This may be due to love, friendship, travel, success. It may also have been borne by loss, hardship, or illness, and you may feel somewhat vulnerable. My narrative guidance will help you to feel safe and supported in exploring sensitive areas of life experience. On completion of this first step, you may feel inspired to continue writing. For more than a decade, I have specialized in collaborating and mentoring people to help them tell their life stories. Moreover,  the use of life writing as a therapeutic tool was a major theme in my Ph.D.
