PLP’s letters from prisoners – Pt.1

September 2015  |  Published in Prisoner Letters

The Prisoner’s Literature Project receives thousands of letters every year, and many of them are thank you letters from U.S. prisoners. They’re happy that they’ve both received books from us, and that they can read them and pass them along to other prisoners.

Here’s a selection of some of the thank you letters we’ve received in the recent past:

We’ll continue to update this section of the site over time with more thank you letters from prisoners – and thanks to all who contribute money or volunteer to the PLP, so that we can get these wonderful letters in return.
