Have you ever tried to write your story? Has someone asked you to, but you don't know where to start?
We get it, because writing your own story is actually really hard!
The Telegram Society works with clients to share their legacy by guiding them through their whole life's journey. Our team are highly trained interviewers who lead clients through the different stages of their lives. This means there is no need to worry about what to say, or forgetting parts of your story. The interviewer will create opportunities to share stories from all of the life stages with questions and prompts, bringing to life stories that might not have been shared for decades.
Unlike trying to write your memoir yourself, we take on all the work. This includes taking the stories from your head to the page, some basic research and cultural influences, as well as the editing and shaping. This means you don't have to stare at a blank page wondering where to start, what to write, what to leave out, and if anyone will want to read it.
Every story is different, and we don't use templates and formulaic prose. Each story is individually shaped and crafted in our clients voice, with their style and world view. We simply ask clients to provide the photographs they would like to include and then to do what they do best - share their stories in their own voice.
Every person has a story. We just make sharing it easy.
