ideas. words. create results.
The first step is to contact Brazen Word to discuss the scope of your legacy project. Call or email – your choice. Brazen Word is based out of Toronto, Canada, and with advent of modern technology; distance is no longer a determining factor.
After our initial discussion, a written proposal as well as a fee schedule will be prepared and submitted to you. If the terms are mutually agreeable, a written writing contract and a confidentiality agreement will be signed.
The word ‘Story’ can be used as a synonym of the word Narrative. 'Narrative' comes from the Latin verb ‘narrare’, ‘to tell’ and is commonly modified by the Latin adjective ‘gnarus ‘ which implies a ‘skilled knowing’.
Brazen Word's Mission is to render your own personal, family or communal narrative into a coherent skilled story to leave as a record and legacy for your children, grandchildren and other extended family members - or even for your community. A compelling narrative can also aid in the psychological process of developing a positive sense of self and/or community identity.
It is my belief that every life has an intrinsic value with a message or meaning of relevance for those who come after us. It is my desire to make memoir writing accessible to those not-so-famous or notorious individuals. While you can track and chart your family tree, what you cannot do is, make your family tree blossom on the bare bones of statistical information.
For a very reasonable fee, Brazen Word will professionally craft your memoir, community or organization’s history in a written format in order to breathe life into your family tree. After the memoir is written, for a small additional fee I can also aid in having the memoir bound in either soft and/or hard cover or even help format your narrative into an e-book format.
