Interview, Writing, Editing

InterviewOur process begins with one or a series of interviews. In advance of the first interview session, we provide a list of questions that help recall memories and organize our clients’ thoughts. We then meet to record an oral history, which will be transcribed. An outline for the history begins to takes shape as we review resources that help us tell your story – family albums, diaries, documents, clippings.

Our writers then create a flowing, cohesive narrative from the transcript. Anecdotes and memories are drawn out and transformed into a compelling narrative. We establish a framework for the book – chapter breaks, subsections, and supporting material. We create a rough draft for you, and then edit and proofread for print-ready copy.
