Upcoming Anthology Themes for 2022

Coming April 2022: Breaking Free – more than the labels and expectations that try to define us- Stories of how we’ve broken free from the boxes and chains we’ve been forced into, we’ve gone against the grain in order to be the most authentic versions of ourselves; we’ve risen above the fears, disappointments, and expectations of others to own our strength and personal journeys

Coming July 2022 More Than My Body — stories of inner strength, beauty, resilience, fight, and power that have risen when people have tried to reduce us

Coming September 2022 Delightfully Chaotic – discovering beauty in the chaos of life;

Coming December 2022 Fiery Determination  – stories of making the impossible possible and the ripple effects we’ve been able to witness as a result


“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
-Brene Brown

Uncover the roots of your journey and the message within to deliver the most impactful story possible.


Develop writing confidence with unwavering support and endless education through the writing and publishing of the anthology.


Check out our growing community

The soul writer journey course was just the thing I was looking for to get me out of a creative slump. The sense of community made such a difference for me and engaged me in writing in many new and diverse ways. Writing is an isolated activity, and the group made me feel like part of a family. I needed that, and so did my stories.”

-Leah Spradlin


"Lauren and her team are helpful, knowledgeable and passionate about supporting writers to reach their goals and succeed. Lauren teaches the tools and skills to support your writing journey in a natural, accessible and truly inspiring way! Through the course, I made the necessary changes and recommitted to the book that I’ve been ‘thinking about’ and ‘dabbling with’ writing for a decade now – I feel confident that I’ll finish my book (and possibly many more) with the inspiration, support, accountability and structure that Lauren and her team at Burning Soul Press offer.
I was so impressed by Lauren’s passion, which shines through her eyes and everything she says."

-Liz Witherspoon

“With this being my first venture as an author, I was 100% that person who would have questions popping up from other questions. This would have left me overwhelmed and possibly even caused me to quit. Thankfully Lauren and Burning Soul were there to guide me quickly and with all the help and resources I needed to stay on track. I would recommend Burning Soul Press and the Mastermind program no matter what stage of your writing journey you’re in. There are resources, helpful tips and tricks, and support for every aspect of the writing process.”

-Trevor Creaman, Author of "Augmented Humanity"
