Writings from Women in Prison

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Featuring spoken word poet Leah Thorn, readings from women in prison and film by Suzanne Cohen.

This event explores the creative writings of women offenders who have experienced incarceration. There will be readings from the anthology Release, a book of powerful and moving poetry and life-testimony by women in prison, on the theme of self-harm.

There will be a screening of excerpts from the short documentary, Beautiful Sentence, produced and directed by Suzanne Cohen.

The film follows poet Leah Thorn in her work as writer-in-residence in a high security women's prison.

Through her workshops we meet a variety of women striving to find a voice through creative writing. Personal histories, emotions and inner conflicts are revealed through their poems and interactions.
