Hard Way

By James Humdy

Right to Write Press was formed to promote the growth of emerging writers who are incarcerated in California State prisons.  The Press believes that seeing a writer’s work in print is transformative: identity that has been denied by the prison system is reclaimed.  Celebrating the emergence of a new identity – that of poet, novelist, short story writer, essayist, songwriter – Right to Write Press provides guidance and publication opportunities to prisoners who may never have realized before that they are, at heart, writers.

Our special thanks to Sandow Birk for his permission to use his painting “Salinas Valley State Prison”, Courtesy of Catharine Clark Gallery, San Francisco.

Right to Write Press is supported by donations, a small percentage from book sales, and a generous grant from the Fish Arm Fund at the East Bay Community Foundation.
