Author, and curator Joseph Fusaro, who speaks with NAMI and This Is My Brave, said of the project,
"Over the last three years I've met so many amazingly talented writers, and my honest opinion is that the only difference between their poetry and the poetry written by someone who is making a living in the industry, is that that person who is making a living got published. They had somebody that believed in them and invested in their talents.
I put together Stars because I believe in these writers. I believe in them as people, and I know that no matter what they write, it will always be good because their work is authentic and from the heart.
I am at a point in my career where I feel like I've said everything that I need to say for now. My new mission is to help writers realize their own talents and to get their words on paper for everyone to read. If I believe in anything it is that being free to tell our story can really help to heal a part of ourselves that often goes over-looked in modern medicine. Our stories can also help other's find the right words. Groups like NAMI, This Is My Brave, and PeaceLove inspired me to write my books. Now it's my turn to pass this on."
