Write for us

Our stories matter. We use them to lean on and learn from one another as we try to make sense of our loss.

The award-winning Grief Diaries series started in 2015 and is now home to over 35 books and 700 writers who share their loss to help us feel less alone.

Family and friends who read any one of the Grief Diaries will find insight and understanding, and scholars will benefit from studying candid, unfiltered nonfiction stories and use them to find ways to better support future grievers.

Want to share your story? We offer 3 options:

  • Once enough writers have registered (15-20), we’ll move forward as a group.
  • Every week for six weeks, the group will receive three questions to answer.
  • Answers are compiled into the book.
  • The manuscript will be sent back to writers for review and make revisions if desired.
  • You can use a pen name if you want to protect your privacy.
  • Each writer will receive one free copy of the book as our way of thanking you.
  • As a Grief Diaries writer, you can purchase any of the anthology books at wholesale price. This is good for life.
