Moving the Needles (MtN) found its humble beginnings in the early days of COVID-19. Toffy and Fair created writing workshops to bring friends together in order to find hope and connection during isolating times. While the initial goal of the workshops was to produce an article, we realized that the mere act of writing was healing in and of itself and decided to foster spaces to encourage writing in a safe environment to nurture reflection and creativity. 


Words have power, both positive and negative, and if used correctly and without judgement, can create profound impact - at both a personal and community level. We are lifelong journalers and are excited to make journaling and expressive writing a more collective and healing experience. We hope you will join and be a part of our journey.
