American Prison Writing Archive

The American Prison Writing Archive (APWA) shares the writings of those affected by the U.S. carceral system. The APWA is an open access archive and anyone with first-hand experience inside US carceral institutions today is eligible to submit essays. This includes prison employees and volunteers, who materially shape the day-to-day conditions in which incarcerated people live, and who are in turn deeply affected by their work.  Read the reflections of others or leave your own.
