ReSentencing Journal

The ReSentencing Journal is a collection of poems, stories, essays, and visual art pieces compiled into a beautiful book. The journal highlights art created by currently and formerly incarcerated individuals and acts as a platform for creative expression. This project seeks to represent and re-imagine the experience of imprisonment and freedom in the U.S. from a personal point of view from the perspective of people who have extraordinary talent and a tremendous amount to teach.

All submissions, including those not published in the journal, are available for public access through the Tufts Archival Research Center database here.
