Welcome to Modern Loss
Candid conversation and community on the long arc of loss and resilience. Beginners welcome.
Welcome to Modern Loss — a virtual community now exclusively on Substack. We serve up a candid conversation, community, and resources on the long arc of grief and resilience with a bit of attitude and zero platitudes. Beginners welcome.
We’ll be offering a combination of raw and real personal essays that are narrowly focused on one aspect of the wide-ranging beast that is loss, including interviews with authors, experts, and inspiring creatives.
And if that’s not enough, becoming a premium subscriber will allow you first access to:
Subscriber-only posts and access to the full archive.
Ability to post comments and join the community.
Virtual expert sessions (just a few of our offerings: mindfulness, yoga for grief support, an hour to your damn selves for young widowed parents, sessions on navigating friendship and intimacy after loss, even a rage baking class)
Inclusion in our closed peer-to-peer Facebook group.
Maybe even a playlist or two.
Our hope? That you find comfort in realizing you’re not alone in this mess, hope in the assurance that you are anything but broken, and encouragement from the concrete examples that life can often be rich, rewarding, and incredibly meaningful not just in spite of — but sometimes because of — the hand you’ve been dealt. Plus, laughter never hurts.
Sign up now so you don’t miss the first issue in January and check out ModernLoss.com to stay up to date on everything now. (Hint: this also makes a meaningful and intentional gift for someone who needs it. Plus, it lasts a lot longer than a casserole.)
And in the meantime, tell your friends!
