Is your history a mystery to your family?
After about two years of thinking and planning, I’m launching a business as a personal historian called LifeCycle Stories. I hope to use my journalism skills to help individuals, community organizations and businesses preserve their legacies through words and photographs, resulting in a published, professionally designed book.
These are examples of projects I can offer. Other services include memoir writing workshops for book or community groups, college essay coaching, tributes and cookbooks for special occasions like anniversaries, birthdays or retirement dinners, corporate bios and newsletters, and legacy wills.
I’ve revamped my website: www.lisakwinkler.com but intend to continue blogging under www.cyclingrandma.wordpress.com. I’ve ordered business cards, and joined the professional organization, Association of Personal Historians.
To help with my launch, I’m offering my blog readers a complimentary package: two hours of interviews (via email or phone), transcribed and edited into a narrative and delivered as an electronic file. Perhaps you have a relative whose story you’d like to hear or have a treasured heirloom you’d like to know about, or your community organization or business could use its history to share with others. If you’re interested, leave me a comment and a winner will be selected randomly.
And of course, I’d love referrals!
