Exploring the realities of your past is one crucial part of understanding the realities of your present. The lessons you have learned over the course of your life influence you still today. But how do you communicate these life lessons to future generations?
An autobiography is the obvious solution, but if you don’t feel confident in your writing skills, don’t have time / physical capability, or don’t know where to start, what can you do?
This is where a Biography Writing session can help!
Biography Writing sessions are interviews conducted via Skype or telephone. One hour of interview results in about four pages of biographical writing. Half an hour of interview results in one to two pages of biography.
When the work is finished, you will have a meaningful summary of your life story and an enjoyable read to pass on to future generations!
You’ve been meaning to do this for a long time – but chances are you won’t do it if you don’t make a commitment now.
Take charge of your legacy. Explore your past with a Personal Historian.
Option #1: 1 to 2 page biography
One half-hour interview results in one to two (1 to 2) pages of biography. The cost is $30 for the interview and $15.00/hour of writing time.*
This is perfect for artists, authors, teachers, businesspeople, and others who need a concise, well-written biographical summary of themselves and their achievements for their own websites and promotional materials. This is also a great service to use for an online dating profile!
Option #2: 3 to 4 page biography
One hour-long interview results in three to four (3 to 4) pages of biography. The cost is $60 for the interview and $12.50/hour of writing time.*
This is an attractive option for artists, businesspeople, and others who need a longer, well-written biographical summary of themselves, including their achievements, values, and outside interests. This is a great service to use if you are celebrating your anniversary at a company or organization, having a major birthday party, or other major event where you are the guest of honor!
This is also a great service to purchase for weddings, and you can split up the interview between both parties being married for the same price!
Option #3: 10 page biography
Three or four separate hour-long interviews result in six to ten (6 to 10) pages of biography. The cost is $60 for each hour of interview and $10.00/hour of writing time.*
Option #4: Weekly sessions with a personal historian to write your full biography
If you want to write your full biography – anything more than 10 pages of writing – you can hire a personal historian to work with you on a weekly basis for one hour per week for a discounted rate.
One hour-long interview results in three to four (3 to 4) pages of biography. The cost is $50 for each weekly one-hour interview and $10.00/hour of writing time.*
The discounted rate is available only with the commitment to participate in at least five sessions. Cancellations that happen before the five sessions have been completed mean that the client will be billed for the standard fee (posted above in option #3) and the discounted fee.
*Note: Number of hours of writing time required for each pieces will not exceed three times the length of the interview. Includes two superficial edits, but does not include re-writes, which will be billed as separate writing time.
