First, I apologize for the long silence and tardiness posting letters from inmates; as well as the delay in getting letter out to incarcerated folks. If you know someone who is waiting to hear from me please let them know they will be getting a letter very soon and I have not forgotten anyone.
Second, for those of you following the issues that Voices has been having with the Maine State Prison I want to let you know that Warden Patricia Barnhart is allowing inmates to send mail to Voices, so long as it does not go to “social networking” sites. Since Voices is a blog and does not fall into that category, I will happily begin posting letter from inmates here in Maine once more. Unfortunately, due to an issue that I cannot discuss here yet, I cannot write back to the inmates at Maine State Prison at this time. However, if you are reading this, and you write to someone there, please let them know they are being published and I look forward to the day that the situation will be resolved.
Third, as always having a Voice is only effective if one knows they have access to such a tool, therefore be sure to SPREAD THE WORD FAR AND WIDE. If you write to anyone in a prison please give them the address so they can send in anything they like, and be sure to let them know to pass it on as well!
