Keeping the Faith: The Prison Project
Keeping the Faith - The Prison Project serves women
in Washington state prisons through dance, expository writing, visual
art and performance. This program serves hundreds of women in prison as
well as offering their incarcerated peers in the audience a chance to
discuss topics relating to their own lives after each performance.
Prison Writing Program
Founded in 1971, the PEN Prison Writing Program
believes in the restorative, rehabilitative power of writing and
provides hundreds of inmates across the country with skilled writing
teachers and audiences for their work. It provides a place for inmates
to express themselves freely and encourages the use of the written word
as a legitimate form of power. PEN's Prison Writing Program sponsors an
annual writing contest, publishes a free "Handbook for Writers In
Prison," provides one-on-one mentoring to inmates, conducts workshops,
and seeks to promote inmates' work publicly through literary
publications and readings.
