Everyone has a story to tell...and this is ours:
Sarah and Andrew’s incurable enthusiasm and genuine interest in people’s life stories stems from their work origins in hospitality. They first met whilst working at a quirky bistro in downtown Cardiff, sometime last century. They lost touch when both ex-patriated from their native Wales via adventures in the Middle East, Far East,
Scotland, the West of England and East Anglia.
The more positive aspects of social media meant they re-united and now work together with their complementary skills on Write to Remember to support and guide creative life-writing.
Sarah has been running creative life-writing sessions in Edinburgh and Aberdeen since 2010; their popularity has grown each year. In 2019, Write to Remember workshops sold out at the Audacious Women Festival and the Luminate Festival.
Sarah holds a BA (Hons) in Communication and an MLitt in Creative Writing. As a published author and freelance writer, Sarah has taught young adults communication skills at further education level and devises and runs creative writing workshops at Edinburgh's beautiful Central Library for both adults and children.
A qualified teacher and freelance writer, Andrew has also worked as a content writer, blogger and editor for an online education resource website. His work on a creative writing based cross-curricular teaching project earned the place of finalist for a Bett Award in 2017 and an ERA Award in 2018. His teaching resources, poetry & stories for children have been translated into several languages and used worldwide.
He has written for several publications including Suffolk and Norfolk Life Magazine,
Sarah and Andrew both have enhanced DBS and hold public liability insurance.
Our vision is to enable your telling of your life stories, documenting incredible experiences and social history through your eyes, within a fun, supportive and inclusive environment.
Write to Remember focusses on the craft and development of creative life writing within a supportive and non-judgmental environment. We help writers hone their skills and confidence, engaging with their stories and enabling them to share with others if they choose. The process of writing and externalising experiences on to the page can be empowering and cathartic; we understand, however, that some memories may be painful and we do urge our writers to seek suitable professional help if this is the case.
