I was delighted to be offered the opportunity to work with men at HMP Leicester as part of their Arts Festival.
The workshops I organised benefited both the men involved and myself as a writer.
It was an wonderful example of arts funding put to excellent use in the practise of writing and art to intervene positively in the lives of vulnerable people.
I witnessed some incredibly moving insights from those involved and a commitment from some to continue the work initiated during the sessions as a means of developing a reflective approach to whole life experience.
Many of the men showed profound levels of self-awareness while some simply enjoyed the thought processes suggested and the involved discussions which ensued. A truly inspiring experience for all concerned.
