Each set of questions will differ slightly based on the event that you select, but here are a few of our favourites (the italicized text will be replaced with the name of your loved one): Explain how you came to meet John? Describe a quality or virtue of John’s that you admire? If you were […]
Each question requires a response to submit, but they can be skipped by simply typing a character in the field. We’ll remove any blank questions from contributions in the proofing phase, after the order has been placed.
Each contribution occupies 2 spreads, beginning with the contributor’s name. Their responses to the 5 questions follow, and continue across 2-3 pages. There’s a limit of 1800 characters to ensure consistency — being forced to edit will prevent unnecessary rambling which can make for a tiring read.

Our contribution form autosaves, so you shouldn’t lose any data if you navigate away in the middle of editing. If you’d like the ability to edit even after you submit, enter your email address at the bottom of the contribution form in the Send me a Copy field. You can edit your contribution as many times […]
Not everyone is a poet, but that’s not what this is about. We all have the ability to express our feelings honestly and sincerely with words, sometimes you just need to get in the right frame of mind. You can definitely do this! Read our contribution guide
Set a reminder We’re all busy and we all forget, but it would be a shame to miss out on this opportunity, so don’t leave it to chance and set a reminder (or two) for a few days before the contribution deadline. Get in the zone It’s often hard to just launch into something like […]
