We are now offering memoirs written by Leaning into Light founder Jessica Rios. Memoirs are bound in small book format and they include a portrait drawn by a gifted illustrator. Average project duration is 4-5 months.
Why does your memoir matter?
To honor your life.Your life matters much more than our society tends to convey. As an elder, you have given a lot in your lifetime. It is important that your life’s stories, work and meaning are captured in writing and shared.
To connect with loved ones. Your Memoir will be written in your voice, so readers can "hear you" and feel your presence in the stories you share about your life. Some loved ones who read your Memoir will learn new things about you. Others will be reminded of the important lessons they learned from you, and the special memories you created together during your life.
Featuringheartfully written stories expressing highlights of your life, your memoir will be composed by lifelong writer Jessica Rios. We will focus on the people along your journey who matter most, the places of significance in your life, and your life’s purpose – what has especially offered meaning and made your life worth living.
The writing will be accompanied by a portrait of you drawn by illustrator Eric Monti using a photo you provide. See examples of his portraits here.
