Vox Press to conduct writing class at Parchman Penitentiary

Just got this press release from Vox Press.


My non-profit group VOX, is initiating a Creative Writing program in Mississippi’s largest, oldest, and most notorious prison, Mississippi State Penitentiary, better known as Parchman Farm. We’ve already set the class up and it will start in January. I have already spoken with the prison officials and they are actually excited about us going into the prison and finding art and literature for publication. Most states already have some form of these types of programs, but not Mississippi. In fact, a creative writing class has never been offered there. We’re stating of at Parchman, but plan on setting this program up state wide. Please send me any information you might have on organizations and individuals who could provide lines of support, financial and otherwise . Please call or email. I have attached some documents that will give you a clearer sense of what we’re doing.

My best,

Louis Bourgeois
Executive Director
