“A single poem—heart-rending, fearful, raging, beautiful, grotesque, even hilarious—lets us know we’re not alone in dealing with cancer.” The Cancer Poetry Project, edited by Karin B. Miller, who turned to poetry when her husband was diagnosed with cancer, is accepting submissions through April 30, 2012. Sharpen your pencils, limber up your fingers and your synapses! For some inspiration, read a sampling of The Cancer Poetry Project pieces or purchase the book, including 140 entries.
We’d love for you to share your poetry and any other artistic expression here, too, of course! Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
