SpeakEasy Method Story Projects
Unlock Your Voice.Unleash Your Creativity.
THE SPARK TO CREATING YOUR FIRST DRAFT
Before anything written is published and shared with the world, it begins life as a FIRST DRAFT. A common misconception is that all gifted writers can effortlessly express themselves and pour their words on paper or screen with effortlessness and ease. This is absolutely not always the case!
It is crucial that you begin with a first draft to build a strong FOUNDATION, and that is exactly what The SpeakEasy Story Projects are all about. Our unique writing process is centered on connecting with and understanding people and their stories with the desire to represent them in a way that is authentic and genuine. By “writing with your voice," our team will show you the lasting impact of telling your story which goes beyond a finished transcript and a published book.
We will provide the “spark” to help you “jump start” your writing. Together, we will bring to life the theme, details, energy and scope of your story. Along with our affiliate team of specialists - from transcript proof editors, professional writing coaches, manuscript editors, printers and book binders, a publishing consultant, and PR/Marketing experts - we will work alongside you to make your dream of becoming a writer a reality.
