A journalist friend of mine has been writing about prisons. She has discovered in the process an extraordinary wealth of amazing and reflective writing by prisoners. I’d like (and they’ve agreed) to turn some of this writing into a blog, since the prison won’t permit them to publish the writings in the prison paper.
Is anyone game to help? I’d send you (by snail or fax) copies of the essays; you’d be a contributor to the blog by posting what was written, and adding comments of your own. I’d only need a couple volunteers to make this possible. I’m happy to host the site and pay for the MT interface (yes, I’m HAPPY to pay for MT).
Email me at this disposable email address by June 7 if you’re willing to help.
UPDATE: Ok, my inbox is flooded with great volunteers. Thanks to everyone who did volunteer. More here when we get it going.
