About Grief Diaries

Believing in the power of stories to heal, Lynda Cheldelin Fell created Grief Diaries in 2014 as a radio show featuring guests who had turned pain into purpose after loss. She expanded the brand into live filming, the National Grief & Hope Convention featuring Martin Luther King's daughter, and the award-winning Grief Diaries book series.

To date, over 700 writers from 11 countries have participated in the series. The brand's accumulation of stories from blog submissions, interviews, and the award-winning book series has created the largest collection of grief experiences in the world. Join us.
