Our stories define us. Powerful and authentic stories we tell ourselves and other people about a person, an event, a decision, or even a moment that has special meaning. In a step-by-step process, I will help you write an essay in your own words that will connect and engage your readers.
1. Recorded Zoom Interview
Whether you are sure of your topic or still exploring, I'll ask you questions, and your answers will form the basis of your essay.
2. Transcription, Analysis, Structure
I will make a transcription of our call, then spend some time analyzing the stories you've told me. I will then take your own words and place them into a document with a clear structure, adding questions for you that probe for further details.
3. Drafts & Revisions
After I share the first draft of the document with you, it will be your turn to answer the questions I've included in the draft. We will repeat this process a couple more times until we have a draft we both believe accurately captures your story and your authentic voice.
