Is this you?

The Cohort is for you if:

  • You know you have a story to tell, either about your own life or members of your family

  • Despite your best intentions, you haven’t gotten your book done and you're ready to complete the project

  • You are willing to invest time and resources into doing a book project yourself, but could use some support, structure and motivation

  • You’d like to go beyond the basics to create a thoughtful, engaging, and professional book that will stand the test of time.

  • You feel a sense of duty to document and record family stories for generations to come: because if you don’t do it, who will?
