Edited by Julian Broadhead, Laura Kerr
A collection of writings by prisoners and other people connected with prisons, from the United Kingdom and beyond, "Prison Writing" is now published annually in book form and continues to promote creative writing among prisoners in the UK and beyond.
From 2001, there are prizes for the four best contributions as judged by a panel of experts - in addition to the nominal fees paid to all contributors.
Everyone whose work is published receives two complimentary copies of the edition of "Prison Writing" in which it appears.
