Voices from Inside (VFI) runs writing groups for currently or formerly incarcerated women. Through creative writing workshops and public readings, VFI empowers women who have been incarcerated to make changes in their lives and to engage positively with the communities to which they return.
Founded in 1999 and located in Western Massachusetts, VFI currently runs four groups for women: in a medium-security jail, its pre-release program, a correctional substance abuse treatment facility, and in the community for women who have been recently released. Each group is led by two facilitators who have been trained in the Amherst Writers & Artists method of facilitating writing groups with people from under-served populations. Several graduates of VFI workshops have also been trained and are active in the program.
