Frequently Asked Questions

I’m not a writer! Is Storykeeping for me?

Storykeeping is not about being a writer — anyone can tell a story. We don’t spend time analyzing sentences for word choice and structure. This is not a writing course. We help you access your story and tell it in your words.

I have so many stories, photos, memorabilia. Can you help me?

Yes! We provide a path from overwhelm to calm. Our Storykeeping method enables what’s most important to rise to the top.

What are SlicesTM?

In our programs, we teach you how to capture stories as you tell them in short narratives we call Slices, which make it easy for anyone to tell a rich, multi-generational story. No special writing skills are required.

What does "basic computer literacy" mean?

“Basic computer literacy” means being comfortable going on the Internet, using word processing software like Word or online word processing tools like Google Docs, downloading posted handouts, watching videos, and accessing materials through links. All of the materials for our programs are accessed in a password-protected place on our website.

If you have concerns, please contact us to determine whether our Workshops are for you.

What’s the best way to get started?

By learning the Fundamentals of Storykeeping — in a small group Workshop setting (10-14 people) or individually with One-on-One Consulting.

In just 6 Sessions we show you not only how to get started, but how to keep going. We show you the simple steps you need to take to get it done.

How large are your Workshops?

Our Workshops are small group experiences. We allow no more than 10-14 participants, depending on the Workshop.

How do I choose who to write about?

Don’t think of yourself as choosing between family members, think of yourself as starting with one story. Storykeeping provides you with the tools you need to author as many family stories as you like. The process works best when each family member’s story is considered individually. We suggest you begin with the story that is easiest to access.

How do I become a Member?

Sign up for one of our programs! Workshop participants become “Members” and are given access to our rich and engaging content online for the duration of their program.

High-Quality Content, Meaningful Experience.
