Wendy Bancroft

Wendy has been helping people tell their stories for over 35 years in a series of related careers: a story producer and journalist with CBC Current Affairs, a researcher with two national research organizations, an independent filmmaker, and a leader of workshops helping people remember, write about and share meaningful memories using a method called Guided Autobiography or GAB. She now teaches others to become GAB instructors.

Wendy was lead author of The First Century, a book chronicling the 100th anniversary of the Union of BC Municipalities, co-author of the book, Cinemazoo, My Urban Safari, and structural editor for In Praise of Strong Women, a book that went on to win the Independent Publishers Award for Non-fiction.
