Join us for a remote event with writers Randall Horton and Mark Nowak, who will use historical and contemporary imagery and audio from people in prison to engage in a public conversation around the guiding question, How can the word and digital humanities take back writing in state spaces like public schools and prisons? 

Horton creates creative opportunities, like the Radical Reversal recording studio, for people in prison and his students at the University of New Haven in Connecticut. Nowak creates documentary writing experiences with the global working class (taxi drivers, domestic workers, street vendors, retail workers, and teachers) through PEN America's Worker Writers School, which he founded, and for his students at Manhattanville College in NY.
