Support Our Mission

FreeWriters provides inmates in the county jail system with creative writing opportunities that improve mental health, reduce recidivism, and inspire hope about life after incarceration.

“This is a place to escape the harsh realities of our situations. To open our minds and let the creative juices flow. To smile and laugh. To share our thoughts. Just for a minute, I feel like I am not an inmate. A little less worried of what others may think of me. A few days ago, I hit the one-year mark. No contact from the outside world. And now this minute of class makes a huge difference.” — By E.S.
