what is a foreword?
Every person has their own story; a collection of defining moments and interactions they’ve amassed along their life’s path. At Foreword South, we want to be intentional about transcribing those stories and amplifying them to a larger audience. In a book, a foreword, usually written by someone other than the author, serves as an introduction to a body of written work. A foreword gives some insight into that person’s experience with the author or the text itself.
The forewords we display here are introductions to a whole spectrum of Southern folks based on our experiences hearing their stories.

We engage consumers on all levels, from social media, long-form narratives, to live events that showcase the diversity of the region.
