It is our belief at WritePublishGrow that the greatest story we can each learn from and grow is our own lives. When we reflect on the events of our lives from a present, positive and patient mindset, we can truly see greatness and catch glimpses of what we are capable of.
When you experience life out of alignment with your true essence, your well-being suffers. Naturally, writing your life out, and seeing the places that caused hurt or tremendous joy, will help you make the adjustments in your life going forward so that you receive every moment as a tremendous gift.
You can be a writer of fiction too and I believe it is in fiction, the greatest human truths are revealed. All characters and situations, as fantastical as they may appear, come from our own psyche. Going deep into your psyche through self-examination opens up your creativity and through embodying your life experience you can create those unforgettable, totally human, and believable characters that will find a place for themselves in the hearts of your readers.
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 a beautifully designed book that will be cherished by your community.

Are you ready to start writing your book?
In 2014 WritePublishGrow was founded by me, a writer and author named Eda Utku. Since then I’ve worked with numerous business owners and writers on the Lower North Shore to get their wisdom out in beautifully designed books.
Taking the time to examine and write out one’s life and lived experience is a deeply healing practice. I encourage everyone who thinks there’s a book in them to start writing today. I provide support, a positive network of like-minded writers and publishing industry professionals and free worksheets on this website. I write blog articles about the journeys of writers like you and me who overcame their inner critic and brought their dream books to life.
In 2014 I published “Expat’s Guide to Sydney” with my friend and co-author Karine and in 2016 I published an anthology with six other writers called “Pieces of North Shore”. In November of 2021, I published 40 copies of my memoir “The Wisdom of Gifts” to gift my writer friends who are struggling to find the support, time and space to express themselves in creative ways. In November 2022, I released “Live the Gift“, a collection of stories of people who inspire me to keep doing the work to create the life I want.
On my journey as a writer, I have taken screenwriting courses at the Australian Writers’ Centre, worked with film producer and story analyst Karel Segers and completed Robert McKee’s Story Seminar in NYC (April 2017).
I look forward to working with you to co-create your beautiful book.
