The Indiana Prison Writers Workshop

July 12, 2022

Thanks to reader support, we have sent The Sun free of charge to men and women behind bars for decades. We began sending the magazine to the Indiana Prison Writers Workshop after we received founder Debra Des Vignes’s letter to the editor mentioning her program teaching creative writing to inmates. In June of this year, the Indiana Prison Writers Workshop was awarded a grant from the Eli Lilly and Company Foundation for a recidivism study. Congratulations to Debra and the program!

We’re grateful for the ability to offer The Sun to those in need through partnerships with organizations like the Indiana Prison Writers Workshop. If you’d like to learn more about our complimentary subscription program or other community partnerships, please contact our director of development and outreach, Molly House, at
