Write Now! A Guide By and For Incarcerated Writers

In 2019, inside student Pierre and others said "we don't want to hoard knowledge, we want to share the wealth." So when Covid-19 hit and in-person classes were suspended, professors Cory Holding and Shalini Puri offered a remote course in which inside students Craig, Steve, Pierre, Ya'iyr, Jeff, Davine, Keith, and Mikey co-authored this writing guide. 
During the depths of Covid isolation, our hope was that the guide would help people inside continue their education independently, develop as writers, and tell their stories. Write On!
