Luminous Ghostwriter Certification


A program to empower more ghostwriters and bring more stories into the world.

Apply by April 13th

Writing a book is hard work.

Many people have wonderful ideas and powerful stories to share, but they don't have the time, energy, or know-how to fully flesh out the book.

Great book ideas die all the time for that reason.


Ghostwriting is a service that takes the ideas and stories of the client and transforms them into books that fit the client's authentic vision, tone, and vision. Ghostwriting can be an intimate and powerful process in helping your client fulfill their dream or goals, so should always be taken with as equal care and quality as you would put into your own book. 

We receive more requests than we can fulfill for ghostwriting. Many are projects that we want to help with, but do not have the capacity to take on. It's why we created the Luminous Ghostwriter Certification program. Our vision is to train other ghostwriters on how to launch a successful ghostwriting business using the framework and procedures that we use at Burning Soul Collective. We want to have a trusted source of ghostwriters we can refer clients to as the requests come in. And if you have a passion for writing, telling stories, and helping other people and want to earn a living combining those three interests, the Luminous Ghostwriter Certification program is for you.  

Learn how to successfully launch your ghostwriting business book with recorded modules, live trainings, guides, and worksheets. 

We've taken the proven tactics and strategies that work for ghostwriting at Burning Soul Collective, and compiled them into a detailed resource for ghostwriters to leverage because we want to remove the barriers preventing more stories from entering the world. Every story has a person it was meant for, and we want to make sure those connections are made.

This is a 90-day program to certify ghostwriters who will have the opportunity to be featured certified ghostwriters on the Burning Soul Collective website and will learn:

  • how to write and transform other people’s stories into a powerful book
  • how to launch a successful ghostwriting business and find aligned clients
  • how to earn $35,000+ for projects that are the right fit for you

The deadline has passed to join our cohort. Join our waiting list to see when our next certification program will launch.
