Hazelden Publishing Meditation Anthologies
Welcome to Hazelden Publishing. We have been sharing the voices of people in recovery since 1954. One of our most beloved forms of publishing has been our meditation books. We offer a meditation a day for those who seek hope and healing as they recover from substance use. And now we're expanding our meditations to specific communities of recovering people: those who have experienced sexual trauma, veterans and those currently serving in the military, first responders, health care providers, and many more. Each person's recovery is unique, but recovery is so much more effective when it's addressed in community.
Here is where you come in. You can add your voice by writing a meditation for one of our books. By publishing this collection of writings from people in a community, we make it into an anthology. We are currently working on the following meditation anthology:
Share your experience, your story, how you found inspiration. Write it and submit it for consideration, so we can share it with others who want to share your strength.
First, you don't have to be a professional writer. You don't have to ever have written a poem or a meditation. We'll provide examples of how meditations are written, and you can just write from your heart and your head. Your experience can speak to others. Your hope will inspire your community.
Then, submit the meditation for consideration. If selected, your meditation may be shared in print, as an ebook, as an audiobook, online, or in mobile apps. We want this to be a big project with many voices.
