Faz parte desde maio 2016


Sobre Nós

Prison Writes http://www.prisonwrites.org/, a division of the New York Writers Workshop http://www.newyorkwritersworkshop.com/, brings therapeutic writing workshops to detained, incarcerated and formerly incarcerated individuals for therapy, advocacy,literacy and more.

Our workshops are conducted according to social work group work methods and values with a strength based perspective and focus on building mutual aid between participants.  

Workshops are co-facilitated by a social worker and faculty member from the NYWW. 

America spends over $80 billion a year incarcerating over 2.4 million people.  Writing can help people re-integrate into their communities and prevent recidivism.

Thirty years of research shows that writing can improve relationships with others, reduce anger, and improve sleep and academic performance, as part of a long list of proven benefits.

PW seeks to engage people who've been involved in our criminal justice system in using writing as a tool for personal healing and expression, to have fun and be creative, and to inform prison policy and reform.
