Elaine Marie Factor is a teacher-of-all-ages, creative writer, editor, 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 published an e-poetry collection titled Gentle Words; and in 2019, a memoir writing booklet titled Scribbling from Memory which she gives as a supplementary manual for her memoir class students.
Her articles and essays have appeared in Feast Magazine, FiSH Magazine, Angel Rising Magazine, Didache, Didache Youth, Gabay, and Yapak PH.
Elaine now owns a writing and tutorial business, Scribblory: Scribbling from Memory, where she helps young and old professionals in recalling, narrating, and sharing life stories through writing. Under Scribblory, she offers the following services: writing tutorials, writing workshops, writing classes, editing, and ghostwriting.
