Free Write: Evidence
Evidence by Introduction by Reginald Dwayne Betts
Books —
$30.00

Evidence is the seventh and most recent anthology produced by Free Write Arts & Literacy, an organization that engages incarcerated and court-involved youth and young adults in the performing, visual, and literary arts so that they become the narrators of their own stories and the authors of their futures. By co-designing creative space with their students, Free Write supports them as they develop educational and career opportunities that reduce recidivism while also contributing to the public discourse around issues of youth incarceration.

This workbook was created in response to a need to educate our youth on appropriate social media correspondence as a result of a crisis or trauma.
