A single poem—heart-rending, fearful, raging, beautiful, grotesque, even hilarious—lets us know we're not alone in dealing with cancer. This was the idea that launched The Cancer Poetry Project and drew more than 1,200 submissions from published poets, first-time poets and everyone in between. The award-winning result is a national anthology of 140 poems, plus the story and people behind each.

Karin B. Miller, founder and editor of The Cancer Poetry Project, was featured in a cover story about the two award-winning national anthologies in St. Louis Park magazine.
