Movable: Narratives of Recovery and Place is an interactive community website that collects creative nonfiction, poetry, and interviews on the topic of recovery in Appalachia.
Statistics on incarcerations, overdoses, and deaths are widespread and easy enough to understand. But what about the people behind those numbers? What about the stories that remain unheard? What if we consider the weight of our words? What if we change the narrative?
By definition, movable means "capable of being moved." Recovery is possible; we are capable. Empathy is possible; we are capable. Here is a place for us to share recovery journeys. Here is a place dedicated not only to stories that move us but to allowing ourselves to be movable.
