Creative Writing Essays

To encourage student-inmates to reflect on their personal journeys and share their stories, those housed in Prison School are invited to take part in our annual Creative Writing Competition. Every year, student-inmates are given different topics to reflect and write a story on. Explore the top entries written over the years by clicking on the titles of the posts below.

I WOULD TELL ANYONE
WHO WANTS TO START WRITING TO JUST GIVE IT A SHOT & EXPRESS YOURSELF.

I wanted to enter this competition because I have not touched a pen in many years. I thought that entering this competition is a way to redeem myself and do something truly beneficial for myself.  I enjoyed the process of brainstorming, reflecting about who I was and what I want to become. I never liked to write or thought I could do it, now I know I can. So, I would tell anyone who want to start writing to just give it a shot and express yourself.
