Enabling people to tell their story one day at a time
My name is Lorraine Dixon and I am the founder of Open Narrative. I currently live in my home town of Sheffield but I have lived in Italy and found my passion for the English language while teaching there.
I have worked in a number of different industries and before starting my own company I had a career in adult education specialising in English language and literacy. I have been a photographer, a graphic designer, a call centre operative, a sales manager, a teacher and a restaurant owner. In fact we still have a little Italian restaurant, which my husband runs. I have travelled to different parts of the world such as Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Egypt and Uganda but there are still so many places I would love to visit.
One day at a time
In 2015, I was frustrated at not being able to remember the smaller subtler changes taking place in my life. Ok, the big things are easy to remember but it’s the little things that we forget. I wanted somewhere to write and be able to see how my thoughts and feelings were shifting as I grew. So, I created Being Me, a five-year diary with a different question every day and in 2017, I published Being Me.
This was just the beginning and in 2019 I created and published Reflections, a card game. As I write, my story with Open Narrative continues and there are exciting new products and ideas in planning and production.
