KORONGO

Korongo is a micro press and writing studio founded by Sara Tucker and Patrick Texier. In addition to hosting writing workshops and providing editorial services, Patrick and Sara arrange writing retreats in Vermont and France. Sara is the author of The Snowbird Chronicles. She and Patrick used to organize safaris in Tanzania. Now they make books.

 

ABOUT KORONGO

Korongo began as the publishing arm of the Greater Randolph Senior Center. Our first books were 60-page memoirs by grandmothers and grandfathers; our equipment was a desktop printer, a guillotine, and a staple gun. Since then, we have produced everything from cookbooks to poetry collections. Some of our books are "for the grandkids," and others sell thousands of copies.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

 

“I started writing at Korongo, and I couldn’t stop—the words just poured out. I finally had to get a computer to keep up.”

Shirly Hook

“Before there was Korongo there was Sara and Patrick. For the better part of four years, Sara guided and encouraged me while I wrote My Annie and my own alphabetical memoir. When I decided to privately publish My Annie, Patrick made it simple, easy and beautiful.”

Barbara Campbell

“Korongo helped me write, illustrate, and publish many family stories that otherwise would have been lost or forgotten.”

Mary Jacobs
