"Writers in Residence helped me both appreciate the power of creative writing in a new, more focused way, while also forcing me to think about the nature of jail, and the unfairness/biases of the system."
"Creative writing in these workshops have really broadened my view of the world. It seems cheesy to say that, but honestly it has really helped expand how I think about both these prompts and the residents life stories."
"I love being able to give the residents an outlet to express themselves, and my hour with them once a week was honestly more socialization than I get in a month. It’s rewarding for everyone involved."
