In 2003 members of the Henry David Thoreau Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Fort Bend County, Texas, began a letter-writing program with prison inmates. Soon afterward they launched a creative writing workshop and then a program that allowed prisoners to serve as writing mentors to college students. Speer describes how these programs started and evolved, sharing details about what worked, what didn't and how the experience was transformational for all involved.
