A post on TomCat's blog. Something different, while the Furies pursue the big newsmaking stories. Literature from prisoners.

Thanks Joanne--their email announcement also captivated me...and timing during prison strike and a correctional researcher telling me that most inmates who don't assess as sociopaths using DSM criteria on admission will after being inside awhile...

Beautifully written poem, and stories from the PEN PWP writing program.

I should also note that these writings come from the Heart. Very moving, imho.

*JL, I didn't know about the DSM findings re: prison and life inside, but I believe it. Very, very sad.

Thank you, Joanne for your post.

Thank you, Joanne, for this article, bringing PEN to our attention and above all introducing us to some powerful writing which becomes even more powerful knowing where it was created.
