I received my copy of The Cancer Poetry Project 2 this week! I finally managed to tear myself away from rereading my own poem in print to survey the book as a whole.
Like the first book, it is a diverse collection of poetry by cancer patients and their families and caregivers. For such a dark, deathly subject, the book is alive and vibrant. Karin Miller’s keen eye brought together a rich collection of poetry that speaks to me the patient, but also to me, the human. It is poetry that will connect you to the writers.
You can order the book through Karin’s website .
You may remember me talking about the Cancer Poetry Project, an amazing anthology of poems by cancer patients, family members and caregivers. Now the Cancer Poetry Project 2 is approaching completion. I am honoured to have a poem that has been picked for this volume and we expect an April publication.
Karin Miller, the founder and editor has launched a to defer the initial costs of publication. Consider supporting this worthwhile project. The first volume of poems is gorgeous and is a wonderful way for patients to connect with the experiences of others who have gone before them.
All the best
