The Prison Reform Trust have just launched their 2017 writing competition.

The competition is open to prisoners, prisoners’ families and friends, and to former prisoners. There are three categories:

  1. A comment piece
  2. A short story
  3. A lyric/rap.

With the prison and probation service at a crossroads, this year’s topic for the comment prize will be:

All in it together: fixing the prison community!

Download the competition leaflet which has more information on the categories, rules and guidelines.

Entries close on Monday 7th August.

Good luck.
