What do you do when you’re locked up behind bars?
How do you improve your chances of living a better quality of life on release?
The arts in prison work.
We are one of the premier arts in criminal justice organisations in the UK working towards raising self esteem and discovering hidden talents amongst both offenders and staff. Established in 1992 we have delivered over 130 residencies in prisons.
The Writers in Prison Network Ltd puts writers and creative artists into prisons to deliver creative writing, drama, video, music, oral storytelling, journalism, creative reading and publishing programmes.
We aim to work with all levels of ability, from below level one literacy to beyond PHD, inspiring and engaging all members of the prison population.
The Network provides 24/7 support for both writers and prisons throughout the residency.
