Our Philosophy

We believe that life writing is essential to living; that writing life is a privilege, right, and responsibility; that written words captivate the aura of experience; that there are as many styles of life writing as there are lives. We are zealous preservers of memory and legacy. More than recollection of ancestors and origins, preservation is pre-serving: a proactive form of service for family, community, and posterity. Our mission is to create narratives that enlighten, entertain, and inspire while preserving stories that are vital to life.
