ABOUT THE BOOK:

Here is a living how- to guide for incarcerated writers, featuring writers who are inside and making incredible contributions to the literature. This handbook pushes us to ask what is confinement, what is incarceration, and how do we connect to a larger writing community. Reginald Dwayne Betts, Scoop Jackson, Mitchell S. Jackson and others offer an intimate bridge to these larger questions.
