The Prisoner Express newsletter contains selected  art, writing and poetry submitted by prisoners from the previous programming cycle and explains what how new members can begin participating in Prisoner Express.

Thousands of newsletters folded, addressed, and ready to go out.
Thousands of newsletters folded, addressed, and ready to go out.

Here's how it works:

Along with writings and content provided by prisoners, the newsletter also lists all the upcoming programs and contains a sign-up sheet. Prisoners return the form with their selected interests to enroll in various programs.

Through the newsletter we seek to provide hope where there is often only despair. Our mission is to celebrate and highlight the common humanity we all share and invite the prisoners to join us in a journey of discovery and skill building. It is a needed link to a world outside of daily prison life that encourages skill and character building.

PE Newsletter Enrollment

If you are incarcerated and you provide a physical address you will receive the next newsletter in the cycle. If you join with your email you will receive a PDF link as soon as it's available. You'll be able to read selections from our various programs and learn more about what is being offered.

You can enroll someone you know who's incarcerated, or you can simply subscribe for yourself. If you want to get the newsletter via email, sign up here:
