The Soul Writer Journey

Join our engaging community of Soul Writers and gain confidence in your story, and most importantly, yourself. 


There is a story inside of you. 


It’s brewing within, whether you’ve written pieces down, have your manuscript nearly finished, or simply feel it in your heart. 

But there’s something missing…

You're feeling your mind take over, firing doubts and insecurities that you weren't expecting to have when you first set out to write. 

Maybe you're wondering if your story is worth sharing or if it's good enough.

Maybe you're questioning if you have what it takes or if you're “doing it right”.

Perhaps the thought of sharing your story is terrifying you. 

Maybe you feel that you're stuck on a carousel instead of making progress with your book like you really hoped to.

Maybe you're wondering if anyone else feels the way you do.

I can assure you that many writers experience all of these thoughts at some point or another. But if we don't realize how normal these thoughts are, it can leave us feeling isolated and stuck in our writing which compounds the frustrations, reducing the joy of what should be an incredible adventure of becoming an author.

It's why having a strong, supportive group of other writers who understand you and all of the wonderful and beautiful quirks that separates creatives from the rest of the world is so important.

The beauty of authors coming together is that authors never have to compete with each other. Readers don't just read one book and they're done—they fall in love with a book, and want to consume more books in the same genre. And other authors love books in the genres they're writing in, so our excitement for what we all are working on is pure and contagious.

Sometimes it's just nice to be within the presence of other writers who are dedicating time to their own pieces of art. To have people who understand you and the process, authors to provide specific feedback and bounce ideas off for validation, to be inspired by the flowing energy that comes out of writers when they're in the zone.

Whatever has brought you to the Soul Writer Journey, you've found your writing group to support, educate, guide, and celebrate you throughout your author adventure. 

The Soul Writer Journey was designed with you in mind, a writer, to ensure your story is captured and that you never give up on the the idea that was given specifically to you to write—a true gift from the universe. 

The world needs your unique self, voice, and story—and the Soul Writer Journey community will help you celebrate even the tiniest achievements because we're all in this glorious writing space together. 

"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.

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.”
