Our stories are individual, but our experiences can be deeply connected. Knowing there is someone out there who understands what we are going through can be helpful and healing, creating connection to someone who was once a stranger.

Your grief story can help others on their journey of loss. HeartLight Center invites you to share what is on your heart so someone else may feel seen, understood, or less alone.

Even if you have never written before, send us a letter, poem, quote, short story, how you have coped, what you have learned, a book recommendation, or anything else that feels right or helpful to share.

Submissions can be 5-2400 words in length. Please complete the form to submit the writing you would like us to consider for an upcoming blog/newsletter contribution!

(If you have an expressive art piece that you would like to share such as a drawing, please contact us at info@heartlightcenter.org with the subject: Heart to Heart submission.)

From our heart to yours,

Thank you
