"Who has time or energy in this busy life to sit for hours and hours arduously writing the details of fond memories?"

But you'd like them recorded as a book, right? And why shouldn't you? Here's the easy way. If you’ve lived a life worth writing about, let SSOA help you record it in book form! We have a team of experienced biographers who can help you write your story – or they’ll even write it for you, under your direction.

If you’ve learnt a lot about life and want to share your story with family, friends, or even publish for a wider readership, we can assist you and point you in the direction of publishing – or go one step further and actually publish your story under the Sydney School of Arts & Humanities publication banner.

If you’ve loved many parts of your life or special people in your life – we can help you recapture those moments and the thoughts of those loved ones, so that you and others can benefit from a clear recall or renascence of those times and those people close to your heart.

Many well-intentioned people – even writers – talk about writing a book based on their own lives. But do they get around to the often difficult task of sitting down and writing it?

Yet we'd all like that story – our own life story – told, wouldn't we?


‘I could write a book about it,’ or ‘People tell me I should write a book about it,’ – but who has time or energy in this busy life to sit for hours and hours arduously writing the details of fond memories and committing them to paper (or a computer)?

It’s one thing to talk a story – quite another thing to write it. Memoir and biography need to be shaped and honed into a kind of art form to be truly persuasive.


All the skills of a talented writer are needed to have your life story come alive – the way you have lived it. In your own particular style.

Your story can be written in what is known as first person (eg ‘I had always wanted to … and I achieved some of those early hopes’) or in third person (eg 'She had hopes in her childhood of reaching … and in many respects she was finally able to …').

Our small team comprises professional writers skilled in the art of memoir and biography. For a reasonable fee based, directly on the hours spent on the research and writing, you will have a unique story of your life – its ups and downs, its adversities and triumphs.
