the Memory Mine

A 6-WEEK COURSE TO UNEARTH YOUR ROOT STORIES. BUILD A BANK OF STORIES TO USE IN YOUR OWN PROJECTS.

I spent twenty-something years telling other people’s stories. But I struggled to access and tell my own stories. I thought I just had a terrible long-term memory. But the real problem was that I had been taught that my memory, my story, was of lesser value than others’ and not to be trusted. Once I found and accepted the value my own story, I began to unearth a thousand memories. Those memories are the raw material—the roots—of my own personal storytelling.

There are moments of beauty and joy and connection in us all. Sometimes we just need a little help to draw out the stories that make us.

The Memory Mine is a 6-week course to unearth your root stories. To build a bank of personal stories to use in your own creative projects.

Miranda - tell your story

It’s hard to tell your own story when you are lost in the middle of it. I know. I’ve been there. I help the voiceless and the tongue-tied to untangle and tell their own stories.

Hi! I’m Miranda. I’m a writer, story teller, designer and, the human behind RootStori.es. The hairy beast below is Pickle, my office buddy, walking companion and favourite sock-muncher.

Everyone has a story to tell, but very few have the confidence or natural inclination to be their own story teller. I’ve spent 20-something years working for the commercial and charitable sectors, for museums and exhibitions,

 helping turn research, data and ideas into stories that people actually want to hear.

Now, I'm working with people. Because what's a story without people? I don't know what took me so long.
