Giving a voice to prisoners: Michigan's Prison Creative Arts Project
Just because you've been found guilty of a crime and sentenced to prison, doesn't mean you no longer have a voice, an opinion, something to say.
And that's why each year the Prison Creative Arts Project puts out the call to prisoners all around Michigan: Send us your poetry, your essays, your short stories.
PCAP goes through each submission and selects work to go into its annual Michigan Review of Prisoner Creative Writing. They're about to release their sixth volume. This one is called "The Sky Is On Fire, After All."
Philip Christman edits the Review, and he's an English Department instructor at the University of Michigan. He joined us today.
