Voices From Inside
Voices from Inside (VFI) is a nonprofit organization that, through creative writing workshops and public readings, allows currently or formerly incarcerated women to share their story and express their voice with the world.
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.
Run by an all-volunteer team, VFI encourages these women to write stories from their diverse life experiences and aims to bring the women's literary work into the community to erode prejudices and misconceptions, and to promote understanding of how ex-prisoners can become productive members of society.
