Letters From Prison
"Letters From Prison" is a prison / penpal system set up to give prisoners a voice to the outside world through their songs, art and stories.
How Does It Work?
Family and friends of current prisoners that may want their voice heard through a song recorded by a professional artist may contact us at OGLettersFromPrison@gmail.com with the inmates Name, Inmate ID#, Prison address and any other information to begin the process.
Family and friends of current prisoners that may want their art seen and short stories read in our official inmate created book may contact us at OGLettersFromPrison@gmail.com with the inmates Name, Inmate ID#, Prison address and any other information to begin the process as well.
Once we have made contact with your family member or friend who is in prison, we will present them with a set of guidelines for their material. These guidelines are simply to protect the victims and inmates.
How Long Till It's Heard or seen?
Once we have compiled at least 10 songs we will begin the process of release through many digital outlets around the world.
The book will be released once we have a minimum of 10 short stories and at least 30 pieces of art.
Who can participate?
Generally, we request that the inmate be serving a minimum of 10 years in prison. However, if an inmate shows a deep desire to participate, we will at least hear them out.
Inmates from all over the world may participate, however, we ask that the material be written in English.
Why Do We Do This?
Many Christian artists did not live as Christians their whole lives. In fact, most walked through the fires of life in order to find a relationship with Jesus.
We know from experience that some of the most talented people are either in prison, struggling with drug addiction or worse....dead.
We want the world to hear what the song of a man or woman serving real time for real crimes has to say through music, stories and art. And we are very sure that YOU WILL TOO!!!
- If you know someone in prison who is talented in song and/or art and writing and may want their voice to be heard, art seen or stories read please email us today at OGLettersFromPrison@gmail.com with inmates Name, Inmate ID#, Prison address and any other information.
