Weekly classes on poetry for male inmates preparing to reenter society at the Hampden County Sheriff’s Department Pre-Release Center. Participants will discuss poems and write their own, exploring how language and storytelling are central to the ways concepts like crime and humanity are defined, becoming well-versed in a literary form that will complement their work on how to deal with common uncertainties about re-entrance.
