Tributes & MessagesClaudia McConnell

I didn’t know Julia, but was moved to buy her book of poems, Sudden Collapses, when I heard her reading on the radio. She captured brilliantly the pain and humour of the hospital visits I was going through following my own diagnosis with breast cancer. I visited her website regularly to check in and see how she was doing, and always felt cheered by her writing. I am thankful that her voice lives on through her writing.
