The Audacity of Angola

Posted on Monday, March 10th 2014
I recently had a conference call with Emmy Award-winning film maker Jonathan Stack and some of his colleagues. While we're still in talks about how we could work together, I was able to secure a free DVD out of the conversation. His documentary titled "The Farm: 10 Down" is a revisit inside the lives of inmates in Angola prison located in Louisiana. A previous documentary, "The Farm: Angola, USA" was made ten years earlier with the same inmates. Angola is a unique prison in the respect that 95% of its inhabitants will never be coming out. It's also the largest maximum security prison in the...

Resume Section

Posted on Wednesday, April 11th 2012
Thank you to everyone who wrote in about resume section bugs, suggestions and so on. We're working on finishing that section up now, and we'll be sure to mark these types of section as beta in the future when we're redoing or starting them.

We're getting a lot more soon to be released inmates than we are employers at the moment, but we're working on that.

Back to Work

One of the reasons the U.S. suffers from such a high recidivism rate is because of the difficulty...

WriteAPrisoner.com & The Media

I just received an email about a story that came out yesterday in the UK. I don't even remember giving this interview, though I'm sure they didn't make it up: http://www.loughboroughecho.net/views-and-blogs/matt-jarram-column/2008/06/13/prison-love-73871-21069562/ ​ This whole thing with the press has grown very tiresome. Richard Ramirez? C'mon. Yes, there is a very small portion of people who seek out inmates of notoriety for romance. We don't know those people, and they don't know us; however, it seems that we're always sharing the same ink or television time. We tend to focus on the rest...
