Moving Forewords is an author collective that celebrates resilience.

We are a community of writers and readers who believe that valuable connections can be made – and incredible strength can be garnered from – sharing true stories of our trials and triumphs. We’re here to talk feats that range from the larger-than-life, down to those that may seem small.

Because, here’s the thing:

Life is about the struggle. Whether it be divorce, addiction, loss and grief, mental or physical illness, financial distress, disability, or any other kind of adversity, we all face significant hardships at points in our lives. What matters at the end of the day is how we face them: how we move from rejection to acceptance, abandonment to belonging, strife to peace, animosity to compassion.

…And that’s where we come in, because tapping into the hearts and minds of others who have gone through difficult times gives us all the courage to rise to our own challenges. We’re here not just to create buzz, but to truly celebrate the remarkable journeys that each of us embark upon in order to persevere. (And what better way to do that than by getting vulnerable and sharing our stories?)
