Thanks to an all volunteer staff, all donations to the Indiana Prison Writers Workshop benefit the incarcerated men and women the program serves.

Support our work by making possible the printing of an annual anthology of student writing. For many writers, the IPWW journal is the first time they see their creative work in print.


Each year, IPWW hosts an art show and public reading of student work. Friends, family members, and IPWW instructors read on behalf of incarcerated writers, and former students read their own work. This event is one opportunity for community members to join together and learn of the creative work of men and women writing from prison.
