Here is the latest Prisoner Express newsletter, being sent to over 4,000 subscribed members. Every issue contains stories, poems, and art submitted by the prisoners participating in our distance learning programs. Every issue of the newsletter we mail to prisoners brings us a cascade of responses letting us know at PE how meaningful our engagement is to the participants.
The knowledge that people read their words and care about their well-being gives prisoners comfort and motivates them to change their lives and habits. Reading one another’s writing helps those in prison gain perspective, connection, and balance.
Volunteer with Prisoner Express Online
There are many ways for volunteers to participate and we have many scanned prisoner essays, poetry, and art online. If you want to know more ways to volunteer or find out about our new initiatives, please consider joining our community page.
Prisoners write to us frequently to thank us for our efforts.
“Thank you for giving us such a great program and all that entails: The educational opportunities, the book programs, writing prompts, creative ideas for self-inquiry, expression, observation, and reflection.
The doors you have opened up have truly shaped and changed my life for sure, and I know I am not the only one who’s been catapulted into a whole new perspective, outlook, and world by the transformational programs you-Prisoner Express offer us behind bars. Thank you thank you”
