Founder & Managing Director
Elaine Marie Factor is a teacher-of-all-ages, creative writer, editor, family biographer, and Philippine-based memoir writing mentor. She finds calm in arts and gains confidence through prayer. Her world stops when she reads and listens to stories, real or unreal.
At age 24, Elaine wrote Feast Books’ Best-Selling memoir, Finding You: A Memoir on Dreams, Detours, and Destiny which became one of the finalists under Youth Category in Jaime Cardinal Sin Catholic Book Awards 2017. In 2018, she wrote an e-poetry collection titled Gentle Words; and in 2022, published Scribbling from Memory, a self-help/memoir that thoroughly discusses memoir as an art and form. Her articles and essays have appeared in Feast Magazine, FiSH Magazine, Angel Rising Magazine, Didache, Didache Youth, Gabay, and Yapak PH.
Elaine is a member of Biographers International Organization, and has been mentored by Wendy Dale, a Penguin Random House author and memoir writing teacher based in Peru.
