StoryTerrace Wants a Biographer For Every Person

StoryTerrace has made it their mission to match ordinary people with extraordinary biographers, so everybody can have their story written.

They connect ordinary (or extraordinary!) people with writers who are skilled at storytelling. The writer will then interview the individual, and write the story of their life. They don’t post rates for their writers, however, clients are charged around 25 cents per word.

According to their website:

Story Terrace is revolutionizing the way we think about our heritage with a simple idea: a biographer for every person.

By matching ordinary people with professional writers, we’re making sure that in 50 years time, everyone can read about their parents and grandparents.

They have been widely featured in publications such as the New York Times, the BBC, and TechCrunch.

They accept applications from writers. They are seeking writers experienced with interviews and profiles — and with previous publishing credentials.
