Every six months a new edition of Prisoner Express News is created and sent free of charge to men and women incarcerated throughout the United States.
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.
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.
Here are some of the past newsletter issues, all available for download and printing. These newsletters are intentionally designed to fit as much content as possible on the page – and limited in contrast and color so they can be easily printed and even photocopied.
