I came across this paper when a question was asked on the Chase asking fore the name of the Prisoners Newspaper. I got straight onto your website and was hooked. I have even subscribed for the paper v...ersion to be delivered to my home every month. What an insight into prison life for people who have never been to prison. I loved reading the poems written by prisoners, I loved the political side of the paper and agree there should be major changes to the prison system. Inside time is extremely well written, by prisoners and other authors. I think more of the outside world should read this paper as it has educated me,made me feel less judgemental towards a lot of prisoners, and massively agree that many prisoners shouldn't have been incarcerated at all. Keep up with your good work and keep fighting for improvement. See More

Horrifying incarceration of children - 78 children under the age of 21 took their own lives in child prisons in the last decade. Young people have less life experience on which to rely to help them deal with problems - http://ow.ly/rAis30i9TEC

The media has highlighted the inherent harms and violence of child-imprisonment. However, the horrifying experiences of incarcerated children have not been successful at creating the kind of public outrage that might be anticipated in a progressive, modern, civilised society.

Welcome to the jungle - Our prisons are very violent and out of control, the plight of the elderly and mentally-ill is disgusting, but the thing that has surprised me most is the almost unbelievable number of innocent men in our prisons. http://ow.ly/WSiH30i9Tpl

Our prisons are very violent and out of control, the plight of the elderly and mentally-ill is disgusting, but the thing that has surprised me most is the almost unbelievable number....

I have an ex-boyfriend serving a two-and-a-half-year sentence in Holme House Prison here in the north east. I was recently given some poems that he had ‘supposedly’ written for me whilst he was serving a previous sentence. As I have stood by him through other sentences I am quite familiar with ....

Star Letter of the Month – We are all flawed - http://ow.ly/iWuv30i9T4H

Every so often in our newspaper we get a series of letters which deride and challenge inmates who are different from others. When I read, last year, how certain inmates won’t use prison blankets because they are made in a prison where sex-offenders are held it saddened me deeply.

The value of education - I spent over 16 years serving short-term sentences. Something had to change. I wanted a different challenge, one that wasn’t spoon-fed or a tick-box exercise. http://ow.ly/Si3N30i9S8a
