Writing competition open to former prisoners

The Prison Reform Trust have just launched their 2017 writing competition.

The competition is open to prisoners, prisoners’ families and friends, and to former prisoners. There are three categories:

  1. A comment piece
  2. A short story
  3. A lyric/rap.

With the prison and probation service at a crossroads, this year’s topic for the comment prize will be:

All in it together: fixing the prison community!

Download the competition leaflet which has more information on the categories, rules and guidelines.

Entries close on Monday 7th August.
