Denney Poetry Workshop Blog Interview

on September 5, 2011

I had the great opportunity to be interviewed on the “Inside Prison Blog” about the Denney Poetry Workshop.

Inside Story Films is the production company of filmmaker Erika Street. Erika began her documentary film career at the Emmy-Award winning studio, Log In Productions, where she acted as associate producer and editor, and gained experience working on videos that address a need for social change.

“Inside” combines a 15-minute fiction film based on memoirs by prison inmates with a prison writing blog. The theme of “Inside” is how people try to connect to one another, even in the face of adversity. Because art and literature transcend borders and boundaries, they unite us and help us better understand ourselves and each other.

The blog interview can be seen here.

I think the interview really captured the details of the poetry workshop!

I also had a chance to edit the Denney Poetry Workshop Blog. We added an “About the Poetry Workshop” page to the blog, and linked some of the posts I’ve written on this blog about the poetry workshop as well as the recent interview.
