“I died in 1960 from a prison-sentence and poetry brought me back to LIFE”

When we launched Prison Poetry Workshop we got some push back from conservative pundits angry about our support from the NEA, as well as from some major cultural institutions that felt the support was better directed elsewhere—to things like orchestras.
After an extremely successful first season, we’re now gearing up for another round of sending the powerful voices of prison writers into thousands of homes and prison cells across the country.  Each week we hear from another prison poet hoping we’ll continue our work! We’re offering an amazing Etheridge Knight t-shirt to help rally people around prison poetry.  With your support our 2nd season will be amazing.  Take a listen to a short sample from the series and seeing what we are thinking for year two.
We’re asking you to spread the word.  Copy and paste the message below into your social media feeds.
