Prison Writing: A Collection of Fact, Fiction and Verse
Julian Broadhead, Laura Kerr
Waterside Press, Jan 1, 2002 - Law - 120 pages
Reviews of the previous edition: 'A remarkable anthology wich will interest everyone concerned with the fate of prisoners and anxious to see their conditions improved': Michael McMullan, Justice of the Peace. 'This fascinating and very readable collection of fact, fiction and verse is the fifteenth issue edited and produced by two probation officers from Sheffield. We are fortunate that they have found a new publisher in Waterside Press to continue giving prisoners (and others), an opportunity to do something wich all writers crave - find an audience to communicate their feelings and experiences... The contributors give deeply personal insights into the nature of their world and prove that imagination and talent are incapable of being destroyed if people are ready to develop them... This anthology deserves to be read... by everyone who is interested in new writers experimenting with the development of their talent. Each piece is different and compelling: David Underhill, The Magistrate. This 16th edition is an entirely new collection of writings by prisoners and other people connected with prisons, from the United Kingdom and beyond.
