Victoria Sammartino is the Founder and executive director of Voices UnBroken a Bronx-based non-profit organization that facilitates creative writing workshops with young people who are incarcerated/detained or in the foster care system. We asked Victoria to do a writing workshop for us. Check it out.

Prison Poetry Workshop has asked poets from across the country to record a special workshop for our listeners.  Feel free to play this series for incarcerated, or formerly incarcerated youth and adults and ask them to write their own poetry in response and send them to us.  Responses may be posted on the Prison Poetry Workshop website and shared with our listening audience.
