Avant-garde [uh-vahnt-gahrd]

the advance group in any field, especially in the visual, literary, or musical arts, whose works are characterized chiefly by unorthodox and experimental methods.

Growing up in a place where my opinions were rarely taken seriously, let alone valued, my mind and heart turned to writing, in the hope of finding a safe place where my words and beliefs will find a safe place, and the sheets of the numerous journals I have gone through provided that for me, until I thought that maybe, just maybe, I might want to share my words with the world.

With a bundle of encouragement and a whole lot of pushing and shoving from my loved ones, here I am, turning to the internet to widen my reach.

Welcome to Riavantgarde.

I hope you enjoy your stay.
