I hope and pray that upon receipt of this request that all is well. I extracted your information from the PEN Handbook For Writers In Prison resource booklet.
I am interested in receiving a copy of the National Prisoner Resource List booklet. I am also interested in any books you have to offer, with respect to writing poetry – rhyme, rhythm, meter: short stories – foreshadowing, characters, creativity or English grammar. I am an avid and published writer of poetry and short stories.
I thank you for your time and consideration in this matter. Enclosed is a donation of five stamps, a token of my appreciation. Excuse my penmanship I am currently in the SHU special housing unit and the flimsy flexible plastic pens are quite difficult to write with.
Financial donations are the single factor that limits the number of people we can serve. Just $3 is the average cost of mailing a package of carefully selected books from our library!
