Become a Part of a Timeless Book to Connect Generations - Share Your Wisdom for the Grandchildren



Become a Part of a Timeless Book to Connect Generations - Share Your Wisdom for the Grandchildren (Anthology Project)

Stories play an important part in all cultures from ancient times to the present day. There’s not one country on this planet where storytelling isn’t part of the culture. It’s just something that human beings do. As a matter of fact, Australia’s Aboriginal people have the oldest, longest history of mankind, an all-oral tradition that spans 30,000 years. 

Elders typically deliver their messages to the next generations orally, sharing their experiences, feelings and values. Oral stories fade over time, but written stories live forever, preserving historical values and culture. Finding a way to preserve this elder wisdom is essential, making it a beautiful gift for a younger person.

Times change, but our memories help us imagine how life was: trials, triumphs and life lessons. Memories teach us about perseverance, loyalty, commitment, and resilience. 

What do you want our grandchildren to know? What life lessons will you share with future generations that could enhance their lives? How do you want to be remembered? 

Writing your story is an opportunity for you to share it and have it shared over and over again, keeping your memory alive. Share your wisdom, cherished morals and nuggets of truth that have gotten you where you are with the intention of giving the younger generation something that will carry them through and better their lives in For the Grandchildren, the working title of an anthology of elder wisdom written by you and produced by Publish and Promote
