Incarcerated Archive

The Incarcerated Archive is a growing collection of writings and artworks from incarcerated people in the state of Michigan. This collection of material began at a poetry workshop called Writer’s Block. But, given the forced relocation of earlier members, inspired words from incarcerated people across the state began to accumulate. This archive reflects some of that work.
