How do incarcerated voices resonate beyond walls, beyond bars?

Breaking Out: Voices from the Inside is a presentation of Words Without Walls, a program of the Chatham University’s MFA in Creative Writing. The program illuminates experiences of the criminal justice system through a night of readings and performances celebrating PEN America Prison Writing Award winners. Prominent local authors will perform the award-winning pieces of poetry, fiction, memoir, & theater written by incarcerated writers.

Performers include a cross-section of activists, artists, journalists, politicians & policymakers. Performances and writings explore common ground in incarcerated and free experiences and reveals the power of sharing ones story.
