Many of the writings submitted to the 2015 competition were compiled in an anthology providing a rarely seen perspective of prisoners.  The topics range from poignant memoires to humor and genuine compassion as well as tales of mystery and intrigue.   Readers will be surprised at how this composite of prisoners’ writings portrays a rarely exposed side of prison life.
