4 P.M. Count: Writing for Transformative Justice, hosted by Dr. James Reese and presented on Friday, October 3, will discuss creative writing programs in U.S. prisons. Since 2008, Jim Reese has been one of six artists-in-residence throughout the country who are part of the National Endowment for the Art’s interagency initiative with the Department of Justice’s Federal Bureau of Prisons. Here he established Yankton Federal Prison Camp’s first creative writing workshop and publishing course, editing a yearly (perfect bound) journal, 4 P.M. Count, which features creative writing and visual artwork by inmates. Join us to discuss the power of voice.
