Voices From Inside

Voices From Inside

A reading of poetry and prose by women from the Chicopee, MA Prison

October 18, 7pm

Augusta Savage Gallery


Founded in 1999 and located in Western Massachusetts, through public readings, Voices from Inside empowers women who have been incarcerated to make changes in their lives and to engage positively with the communities to which they return.  These women, who are from minimum security facilities or women released into the community read their work and open up to express themselves and be understood. The organization currently runs four groups for women: in a medium-security jail, its pre-release program, a correctional substance abuse treatment facility, and in the community for women who have been recently released. Each group is led by two facilitators who have been trained in the Amherst Writers & Artists method of facilitating writing groups with people from under-served populations.
