Bridges to Universities
If you’re a teacher looking for opportunities to start dialogues about prison reform, Prison Renaissance wants to give you a powerful conversation starter for your classroom: compelling essays, fiction, poetry, interviews, and profiles written by incarcerated people. Our growing collection ranges from literature worth studying for artistic excellence to essays that provide new angles for traditional course subjects. Not only does the work make for engaging coursework but research suggests that compelling, educational content by one incarcerated person can increase readers’ empathy for all incarcerated people.
