Poetry and Prose

This space provides an opportunity to highlight creative writing by people in prison, formerly incarcerated artists, and other artists working in and around the US carceral system. Please contact us if you would like to add a file to the gallery, and review the consent form. We also ask that you contact us if you are interested in utilizing anything in this gallery for your own purposes, or would like to connect with any of the featured writers.

Please note that Justice Arts Coalition is not able to sell artwork unless it has been donated to us. If you would like to learn more about how to market your loved ones’ work, or wish to connect directly with an artist or their designee to discuss a purchase, feel free to reach out to us.
