Poems from the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign:

Poem written for Radio 4 Woman's Hour:

'Think Pink' -
Breast Cancer Awareness

Claire Calman was appointed to work with the Imperial Cancer Research Fund to write poems to highlight the charity's 'Think Pink' campaign for Breast Cancer Awareness month in October 1998. Claire's ability to write witty, bittersweet and accessible work made her an ideal choice for this complex subject. At the conclusion, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month Co-ordinator Maxine Cole wrote to The Poetry Society: 'I'm sure that you will be pleased to know that Claire's poems inspired members of the general public to write their own poems, which I have been collecting in my office.' 

Claire Calman's poetry has been performed on Radio 4, for Woman's Hour and a radio comedy series called Five Squeezy Pieces.
