You have stories worth telling.
Besides... you wouldn't have found us here if you didn't have something to write about.
Our life journeys are full of stories—our experiences, the characters, and the developments that have contributed to who we are today.
When we meet someone new, we use the stories of our lives to form connections. We use stories to gauge how much we have in common with other people or how different our perspectives may be. We use stories to explain who we are and why.
Many people who consider writing a book assume they aren't interesting enough... yet they share stories of their life and live to experience new stories every single day.
Often people fear they lack the skills to write their story... and as a result, they miss out on one of the most fulfilling, therapeutic, and rewarding creative outlets in life.
The Soul Writer Society was created to bring writers from all backgrounds and experiences together to learn from each other, exploring our life journeys and how we perceive and apply the things we learn.
We aren't here to judge your writing abilities or techniques. We're here to empower you to write in YOUR way to release the story within that's dying to be told.
The Soul Writer Society celebrates everyone's unique approaches to writing. Even within the Burning Soul Press team—none of us approach our writing the same way. We believe the most important ingredient for writing successfully is that it feels authentic to the person writing it. All else is secondary.
Writing and storytelling are intuitive— when we allow ourselves to turn off our brains and trust ourselves.
That's what the Soul Writer Society is all about. We're here to grow together, to trust our soul over our mind, and learn as much as we can so we become better and more confident authors every single day and bring more powerful stories into this world to make it a better place.
Having a strong, supportive group of fellow writers is so important—to celebrate the wonderful and beautiful quirks that separates creatives from the rest of the world, to have people to bounce ideas off, and to be inspired by the flowing energy that comes out of writers when they're in the zone.
The world needs your unique self, voice, and story—and the Soul Writer Society will empower you to write and share it with the world in the most liberating, effective, and powerful methods.
In short, we are book nerds obsessed with learning as much as possible and lifting each other up to become the best and most authentic authors we can be. We know we can make a positive impact in this world. If this sounds like you, join us! You'll be embraced with open (virtual) arms and you'll walk away a better and more confident author with an army of like-minded writer friends.
"To me, writing your story is one of the most important things you can do with your time in the world. It memorializes your impact, your artistic contribution to this world, especially when it reflects the most authentic and truest form of you.”
Burning Soul Press CEO, Lauren Eckhardt

“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.”
"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."
“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.”
