This is the second year of the Readers & Writers prison writing competition, the topics were set and judged by PEN member and writer Mark Haddon. We had over 400 entries of poems, memoir and book reviews from 60 different prison estates; the winners and commended entries will be published by English PEN.
There will be performances of the prize-winning entries, copies of the collection hot off the press and an informal discussion about creative learning in prison. We warmly invite anyone to attend who is interested in the power of literature to change people’s hearts and minds and to celebrate some fantastic writing from
prisoners all over the UK
Wed 27 Feb 6:30pm (for a 7:00pm start)
