How it works
The approach is simple and happens over six steps:
- Meet your writer: Tell the Story Terrace team a bit about yourself and they will match you with your perfect writer based on your location, preferences, background and interests. The carefully selected writer will capture your unique voice.
- Brainstorm: Use helpful questionnaires to refresh your memory.
- Be interviewed by your writer: Your writer listens carefully and asks the right questions to structure your story.
- Check outline and supply photos: Once you’re happy with the outline, the first draft is written. You supply your favourite photos and any supporting material you'd like to include in your book.
- Comment on the draft: The Story Terrace editor polishes up the text and passes it to you for approval. You may provide as many edits as you'd like to make.
- Receive your Story Book: Your Story Book will be printed in full-colour, beautifully bound and delivered to your home.

It was really special to have the opportunity to read my mum’s book. Some of the stories were completely new to me, resulting in wonderful conversations within our family. The book now prominently features in my home.
