This short documentary profiles Rafael, a member of the Free Minds Book Club, as he explains what writing poetry from prison means to him. The Free Minds Book Club is a Washington, D.C., organization that helps prisoners learn how to read and write poetry while incarcerated.

To read more about the organization, check out the latest Sojourners article by Beatrice M. Spadacini. You can also read more prisoner poetry or see when the next Write Night is scheduled at the Free Minds Poetry Blog.

JP Keenan is the Director of Multimedia at Sojourners.
