There are two ways Emotional Inheritance can help writers tell the best version of the stories they wish to commit to pen, paper and beyond:

1. Do it Yourself

The do it yourself guide, Finding True Connections: How to Learn and Write About a Family Member’s History (RRP$ 39.99) clearly and simply sets out how you can undertake the life writing process yourself, without an external interviewer, helping you capture the best and truest life history of elderly relatives or community members.

Also available is Key Questions in Personal History, a boxed set of 100 cards with prompt questions to help you fully capture the history of elderly relatives, which could become a legacy for their family (RRP $24.99).

2. Your stories, professionally told

Through a structured interview with an experienced writer, the story of your life will be transcribed and published as a limited-edition book. We work with psychologists, writers and historians, while utilising over 25 years’ experience in publishing, to provide a premium interview and life story production service. Discover more at:

This is remembrance at its best. Your family stories. Told your way. On your terms.

Why not use this opportunity to engage budding writers, and help them tell the best family histories possible?
