Welcome to the Survivor's Review

Encouraging the creative expression of cancer survivors

Our goal at the Survivor's Review is to publish stories, essays, and poems that are powerful, poignant, and unflinchingly honest. Whether you are a cancer survivor, caregiver, or friend, we invite you to peruse the features in this issue.

We also hope to encourage all survivors to use writing as a tool for emotional and physical healing. In each issue, guest contributors will offer ideas and prompts to get you started. Click here to begin writing now!

Our evolving resources page lists books, websites, and other links with information on the benefits of writing and creative expression.

Also, if you're a cancer survivor or caregiver who has written a piece that has the potential to touch another's soul, please consider submitting your work to the Survivor's Review. We make every effort to respond as soon as possible.

We are interested in your feedback. Please contact us with your comments and suggestions.

We hope you enjoy this issue of Survivor's Review and that you will share this site with other survivors, caregivers and friends.

The Survivor's Review was founded and is maintained by a small all-volunteer staff. As our readership continues to grow, we are finding ourselves in need of another committed volunteer to join our team. If you are inspired by our mission and have writing/reading/editing experience and basic computer skills, we would like to hear from you.

Our goal is to publish two issues per year, in fall and spring, and we are seeking an Associate Editor who will read and catalogue submissions and readers' interest messages, respond via email to writers and readers, and meet via Zoom for a few editorial meetings twice per year. The workload will average no more than three or four hours a month, with those hours concentrated more in the spring and fall, six weeks prior to publication. If interested, please share a bit about your interest and background with our editor, Sheree Kirby, at sheree@survivorsreview.org.
