We make publishing memoirs one of the best experiences of your life.
Modern Memoirs provides expert writing, editing, and publishing for memoir writers as well as non-writers who need professional writing assistance and other services. We specialize in publishing memoirs and other books that are unique and focus our intense personal care and attention on each project. Our specialty is writing and publishing memoirs that are distinctive and reflect their subjects accurately.
We believe that publishing memoirs for memoir writers and personal or family historians is the most meaningful action we can provide, on a personal level, to make the world a better place. Future generations will benefit from remembering and not forgetting, from understanding and not remaining ignorant of your experiences. And you will personally benefit from life review and memoir writing. Since 1994, we have written or published memoirs for hundreds of satisfied memoir writers and personal historians.
Complete support for memoir writers, story tellers, and narrators
Our experience in publishing memoirs for clients in limited editions means that you will get the expert advice and support needed by all memoir writers and personal historians. Our books are built either on your original manuscript or on our first-person interviews with you, which are transcribed and then rewritten in literary form. Most of our clients include selected photographs, genealogy charts, maps, old letters, and other supplementary materials. Our job is to help you build bridges between the past, present, and future, and personal connections from generation to generation, l'dor v'dor. The time to preserve your personal or family history is right now.
Publishing memoirs is a way to be remembered, to honor your own experiences, and pass along your reflections.
Publishing memoirs is probably the most important project you will undertake in your later years. Are depth, nuance, personality, and wisdom important to you? Design and texture? Is it important that your personal memoirs be high quality? If so, we can help you. Whether you want us to handle your manuscript or write your book in your own words, it is our pleasure to work with you to meet your needs.
A full range of services
Besides interviewing our clients and writing their own stories in their own words (as-told-to), we provide a full range of pre-press and production services for their own manuscripts, including manuscript editing, proofreading, and fact checking, book indexing, book custom design, page formatting, high-quality offset printing and hard cover binding in short runs and limited editions. In addition, we handle copyrights and ISBN numbering for clients by request.
