Modern Loss is all about eradicating the stigma and awkwardness around grief while also focusing on our capacity for resilience and finding meaning. In this interactive guide, Modern Loss cofounder Rebecca Soffer offers candid, practical, and witty advice for confronting a future without your person, honoring their memory, dealing with trigger days, managing your professional life, and navigating new and existing relationships. You’ll find no worn-out platitudes or empty assurances here. With prompts, creative projects, innovative rituals, therapeutic-based exercises, and more, this is the place to explore the messy, long arc of loss on your own timeline—and without judgment.

Rebecca Soffer is cofounder of Modern Loss, which offers creative, meaningful, and practical content and community addressing the long arc of grief. She is also coauthor of the book Modern Loss: Candid Conversation about Grief. Beginners Welcome. (Harper Wave, 2018) and an internationally recognized speaker on loss and resilience. She writes regularly across media, including the New York Times, Glamour, NBC, and CNN. She is a Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism alumna and a former producer for the Peabody Award–winning The Colbert Report. She and her husband and sons split their time between New York City and The Berkshires.

Sara Benincasa is the host of the podcast “Well, This Isn’t Normal." She’s also a comedian, actress, and the author of "Real Artists Have Day Jobs," "Agorafabulous!," "D.C. Trip," and "Great."

Michael Cruz Kayne is a writer on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, host of the podcast "A Good Cry," and creator of the one-man grief comedy show "Sorry for Your Loss."

Rachel Sklar is a writer, speaker, songwriter & entrepreneur in New York City. What even kind of bio is that. Pick something, for God’s sake! She did not pick loss but it picked her, so. She is happy to support Modern Loss and this book. 

Steve Waltien is a writer and actor, known for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (2015), The Opposition with Jordan Klepper (2017) and Don't Think Twice (2016).
