Victoria Pougatch and Mary Alexander met in 2010 while studying for an MA in Creative Writing. Their friendship is built on a love of language, words, reading and writing. Combining forces to become Pougatch Alexander Limited was a natural extension of their daily lives as writers, editors and podcast producers.


Areas of particular interest include memoirs, history, health and business, but generally they just find people fascinating and love coaxing out their stories. They firmly believe that a family history or memoir – written or audio - is the perfect portrait in the 21st century.
