Words from our Lives - HMP Shotts
The project was specifically geared towards male prisoners at the very start of life sentences. The group produced a series of short stories developed through creative writing workshops, they explored digital sound and participated in 12 drama Workshops. Their work focussed on performance technique and how to share their creative work with an audience.
Two spoken word performances took place in HMP Shotts on 2 April to prisoners, staff and friends and family.
