Event description

Description

How do prisoners keep in touch with their families when they’re inside? How do families cope on the outside, and who helps them? How easy is it for released prisoners to acclimatise to life on the outside? Our panellists, Josie Bevan (author of Prisonbag, a blog about her family’s experience of prison), Mark Proctor (CEO of Ormiston Charities), Morwenna Bennelick (Prisoners Education Trust) and Hamish McLellan, will provide a fascinating insight into the impact of imprisonment on families. Dr Jordan Savage will chair the panel.


CRIME AND PUNISHMENT SYMPOSIUM
FRIDAY 9 MARCH

This event is part of Essex Book Festival's Crime and Punishment Symposium, at the University of Essex..

Over the last three years Essex Book Festival, Essex Libraries, University of Essex and English PEN have collaborated on a series of creative writing workshops, Writing on the Inside, for prisoners in HMP/YOI Chelmsford. It was a hugely valuable experience for all concerned. We are hosting a Crime and Punishment Symposium to share this experience with a wider audience, and to debate a variety of issues and challenges for offenders and their families.
