Snowing by Kerry Bradley


A friend told me that when she first received a diagnosis of cancer, they locked the door and that’s how she knew it was bad news. This project is about opening those doors. Mixing poetry, music, and digital art, it is about how we connect in times of crisis.

You can read or listen to the poems, send a digital postcard to someone you care about, or use our creative prompts to write your own.
