Here's a link to the cover story on Hazel Miller in the June 2015 issue of Urban Spectrum magazine.

After the Columbine High School shooting, Catherine O'Neill-Thorn put her poetry curriculum to work, giving the otherwise traumatized students a voice, a creative outlet.  O'Neill-Thorn now leads Art from Ashes, a 10-year old organization that works directly youth facing difficult life circumstances "through creative expression and personal transformation," including poetry and spoken word performance.
