On the Same Page: July Write Night

Join Free Minds for our first in-person Write Night since 2020! At Capitol Hill Write Night, Free Minds members who are formerly incarcerated will join other Free Minds supporters and community members to share personal reflections before each participant reads and responds to poetry by our incarcerated writers. Responses will be collected and mailed to the poets following the event.

A young man stands with his back to the camera, facing an audience in a large room. The young man wears a blue shirt that says Free Minds: Poets with a Purpose.

RSVP for On the Same Page: Write Night

Many Free Minds members have shared that they would not have made it through the most difficult times in prison were it not for our correspondence and resources, particularly the words of support and encouragement that our community back home provides on their writing.

“When I received my first poem back from a Write Night event, I was in awe. Reading the comments helped me to believe that there are people who actually care. This program is truly life changing. It’s given me something to look forward to, and it’s changed my outlook on life, myself, society, and those around me.” – Free Minds Member Ahna
