Our program is designed for inmates to find their literary voices and communicative powers on the page, gaining insight and introspection into what got them into trouble in the first place.
We serve an entire spectrum of adult inmates, men and women, all ages, all races, with educational experience ranging from college degrees to barely an elementary education. We’re here for the inmate's heart and mind. No matter how raw and real. We create writers.
Whenever a student earns their release and bids us farewell, we ask them one simple question and then we make just one suggestion: ‘Are you done? Re-offending, that is. Then please enroll in a Creative Writing class on the outside.’ We assure them that if they can hang in our classroom, they can hang in any classroom.
