WpG’s Humble Roots

WritePublishGrow was born out of a necessity. Eda found many writers who felt disconnected from editors, beta readers, and contacts in the publishing industry. What began in 2014 as a writers’ group has blossomed into a micropublisher which takes writers from the first word to the first draft to all necessary revisions and finally a beautiful book to hold and share.

It is our belief at WritePublishGrow that as humans, we have always lived in times that call for people from all backgrounds, especially the lesser-heard voices of the black sheep, those surviving mental illness, women, people of colour, the indigenous, LBGTQIA+, neurodivergent, the mystics and artists to own our stories.

Everything about you that was rejected by crumbling power structures, is ready to be accepted by those seeking better stories and deeper connections.

Only you know the book of your dreams that aches to see the light of day. At WritePublishGrow, our dream is to work with you to create your beautifully designed book.

Eda’s Story

I’m a writer familiar with the pain of being a black sheep.  In fact, I come from a long line of black sheep.

In my time, I was uprooted as a child when my family left Izmir, Turkey to migrate to the DC area in the US in 1989.

For the past ten years, I’ve been residing in Sydney, Australia, establishing roots in Lane Cove with my partner and two daughters born in 2016 and 2018.

As a result of my childhood wounds, I developed an ability to see family drama from different perspectives. This enables me to write memorable scenes so that your personal stories will contain the wisdom to heal those in the present and for generations to come. My writing journey thus far has reunited me and my clients with their relatives and the culture of their homelands, transforming lives in Australia.

In 2014 I published “Expat’s Guide to Sydney” with a co-author and in 2016 I published an anthology with six other writers called “Pieces of North Shore”.

On my journey as a writer, I have taken screenwriting courses at the Australian Writers’ Centre, from film producer and story analyst Karel Segers, done the rite of passage, Robert McKee’s Story Seminar in NYC and The Writers’ Studio’s Unlocking Creativity online writing course. I finished the first draft of “The Wisdom of Gifts” under Louisa Deasey’s care. It tells my journey from a hurting Grinch to a lover of all life’s gifts, especially Aussie Christmases.

I look forward to working with you to craft your beautiful book filled with your treasured stories.
