Join us for On the Same Page!

NY Writers Coalition has served hundreds of men, women, and youth through our Criminal Justice Writing Program on Rikers Island and elsewhere, and we fully support freedom of expression and know the importance of the written word. Because of that, we’re excited to support the mission of Free Minds Book Club & Writing Workshop and host On the Same Page, an event where attendees respond to and uplift the work of incarcerated writers.

At this event: 

NYWC will provide and distribute copies of prose and poetry from incarcerated writers at various facilities seeking feedback on their writing. You are invited to contribute remarks that respond, uplift, and encourage. At the end of the evening, the pieces (now covered with our inspiring feedback) will be collected and mailed back to the authors. 

On the Same Page is a free event and open to everyone; please share it with anyone you think may be interested in joining us. Snacks and beverages will be provided; we hope to see you there!
