Are you an adult who experienced the incarceration of a parent as a child? Are you interested in sharing your story, in your own words, with others?
We are editing a book of life stories by adults who had a parent in jail and/or prison when they were growing up. The book will describe adult perspectives on parental incarceration. This will not be a book ABOUT children of incarcerated parents, it will be a book BY adults who experienced the incarceration of a parent as children.
There is no requirement that you have ever lived with your incarcerated parent.
There is no requirement that you have had an active relationship with your parent who has been in jail or prison.
We are also interested in those who are the second generation of incarcerated people.
We will provide you with editorial assistance to help you write the story you want to tell. You can send us your written work electronically or by mail.
If you are interested in sharing your story and participating in this important project, please email or write to us at:
