about us Susan Unwin, at the book launch of her book Medical Mayhem in 2018
The Book Incubator™, provides a safe and authentic place for storytelling. Our programs are designed to support people as they tell their stories, discover new things and connect on a deeper level to their personal history. Our programs are inclusive and reflect the needs of the workshop participants. At the Book Incubator we take a step back from today's product driven world,and focus on the process and the importance of the process foe each individual. Through carefully developed workshops, people of all ages find their voice as they craft and tell stories. The creation of personal narratives touches both the author and the reader very deeply. The author has opportunities to have their voice heard through their story telling and the reader is often moved to reflect on the experience of the writer and through their own life experiences. Our programs are empowering tools for self expression. They are fun, challenging, and achievable. Our scope is broad and our workshops are customised to meet the best outcomes for each group. We work with people of all ages. We have worked with people who have suffered the effects of trauma, sexual and domestic abuse, dementia and grief, young mums, people wanting to tell their birth stories, youth groups, the elderly, carers of children with disabilities, children and adults with disabilities. Everybody has a story! Based in the South West of Australia, our team loves to travel and, now that we are online, our programs can be run anywhere in the world.
