I’m sick of hearing they’re in a better place. I’m tired of hearing this happened for a reason. My grief is constantly met with empty words or judgment, so why should I bother telling anyone the truth? I wish just one person would listen to how I really feel.
You’re not alone.
You’ve found a place where your grief is entirely welcome – and you won’t hear a single platitude.
If you’re like many people, you’ve stopped talking about your grief. There are only so many inspirational quotes about death you can accept from friends before you decide to just stay quiet.
The thing is, pain, like love, needs expression. Whether the people in your life want to hear it or not, you have truth that needs to be shared. Written. Heard.
Whether the grief you carry is from a death or another of the many other losses we sustain in life, the Writing Your Grief course is for you. Come share what’s true for you without fear of correction, judgement, or false comfort. Acknowledgment of the truth is a relief – and it heals something in us.
Writing won’t erase your grief.
But it will help you honor it.
Each day of the 30-day course, you’ll receive an email with a writing prompt encouraging you to explore an aspect of your grief. The prompts aren’t typical “tell me about the funeral” prompts – they’re deeper, more complex, and designed to bring you to new and unexpected vantage points.
Every session includes unlimited access to a private Facebook group where you can share your writing with other participants. Much more than a standard grief support group, it is a safe, respectful, beautiful place where you’ll find connection, even in your deepest pain.
Grief doesn’t need to be overcome,
It should be understood.
Meet people who get it.
Megan Devine’s expertly trained facilitators help you learn how to express your grief in writing, but the online group itself is where the real magic lies. This is peer support as it should be: awesome. There is no requirement to write, share, or connect with others; but you’ll get more out of the course the more you participate.
After the course ends, you’ll have online access to the wider WYG alumni group. It’s one of the safest, most fiercely loving and supportive places you’ll find. Writers become family inside that space.
The Writing Your Grief 30 day e-course allows you to get the kind of grief support you never thought possible.
There’s always someone available for support, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, through horrible holiday seasons and ordinary days. Our grief community has your back in ways the outside world often doesn’t.

I began to write for me, not for others. Very liberating. I became published, and was supported in having it done. I highly recommend this course. It is safe, it is compassionate, there is never any pressure to perform. It is one of the best support systems I found in my search for relief. I was given a platform, I was witnessed, I was not a freak. I learned about my grief, I learned about me.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What kinds of losses can I write about?
Any loss you identify as being deeply part of you – especially if it’s never been acknowledged. This may include:
- Deaths of anyone important to you: spouses, parents, siblings, children, partners, friends, family members
- Miscarriage, stillbirth, genetic differences, congenital anomalies, and birth story outcomes tied to loss
- Accidents, sudden death, illnesses, & other life-altering changes
- Suicide, overdose, violent crime, and other deaths with extra challenges
What should I expect during the course?
Throughout the course, you’ll write, every day, with a group of people dedicated to following their hearts, speaking their minds, and honoring their losses. With prompts from Megan, guidance from our program director and team of facilitators, and the words of your fellow writers, you’ll join a community of writers and grievers working together and supporting each other.
Is the Writing Your Grief e-course a substitute for therapy?
No, it isn’t. While writing with a community can be therapeutic, the course itself is not therapy, and should not be considered such. Facilitators do not provide advice or therapy.
Do you offer refunds?
We do not offer refunds for any service, class, or digital product. Grief course registration cannot be transferred to another session (that means if you start it, but find you’re too busy, you can’t move to another session). Not sure or have questions about the course, audiobook, or other services? Please contact the support team before you hit that “buy now” button. Purchase mindfully.
Do you offer scholarships?
We give several scholarship spots per session to those who can’t afford the course costs. We receive far more requests than we can accommodate, which means we turn a LOT of people away.
If you’re able, we’d love to have your help! You can make a donation in any amount, either for WYG scholarships, or to help Sounds True and Megan donate copies of It’s OK That You’re Not OK to communities in need. Just make a note on the receipt when you make your donation.
