Voices from the Inside
Thursday, April 20, 2017 - 7:00pm • 118 Elliot Street
Since 1999, Voices from Inside has been helping women who are currently or formerly incarcerated find their voices, return to their communities with success, and become leaders in their communities. Voices from Inside (VFI) makes a difference in the lives of incarcerated women by giving them the opportunity to find their voices and the power to change their lives through creative writing workshops. In this event, part of Marlboro's Speech Matters semester intensive on life after incarceration, formerly incarcerated women will read from their own work and talk about the experience of giving words to their experiences both inside and out of jail. Many of the participants have in turn led writing groups in correctional institutions or in community programs for women at risk of incarceration or re-incarceration, providing them with valuable leadership experience and skills.
