• Inmate Shopper - Inmate Shopper is a shopping guide and services directory for inmates and was created by a prisoner, George Kayer, who has researched the over 300 businesses listed in the guide for more than the past six years. Inmate Shopper informs its readers about established and newer companies and offers information on pen pal services, scams, opportunities, contests, and places to sell their writing, arts, and crafts. Inmate Shopper also lists pen pal websites, personal assistants, gift boutiques, businesses that want to send prisoners their catalog and nearly 100 contests for prison writers, poets and artists.
