Competition – win a personalised Memeoir and capture conversations with loved ones forever

It used to be that people wrote letters.

When an elderly relative died you would discover a box of musty smelling postcards and love notes, written in a consistent, swirly hand, the letters looping elegantly from one to the next. You’d search through them, trying to piece together the history of a relationship, the feel of the paper in your hand somehow bringing the story to life.

Nowadays we send emails or texts – often short, poorly spelt missives that do little to conjure up any sense of romance or intrigue.

Emails aren’t all bad though. Just because you can’t physically hold them, can’t bring them up to your nose and inhale deeply, imagining you catch the scent of the other person, doesn’t mean they can’t tell just as powerful a story. Thanks to Memeoirs, you can now capture those stories, pin them down onto paper and tuck them away in an innocent looking cardboard box in the garage, ready for future generations to discover and get excited by.

Tell Memeoirs the people you want to include and the time frame you’re interested in and it will rummage through your virtual mailbox and collect conversations, arranging them neatly into a book that you can keep and cherish forever.



Memeoirs is very kindly giving one reader the chance to create their very own hardback book, worth $60, (they can ship worldwide), so if you have email conversations that you would like to preserve then enter using the widget below – the more options you complete the better your chances! The competition will close on October 14th.

Good luck!

    what an ace idea! Tom and I started emailing when we were first getting together, in fact it was an email he wrote about me to a mutual friend (that she secretly forwarded on to me) that made us first go on a date. Then I moved about for 6 weeks and we had a little email romance! I’d often thought about printing them all out! x
