Life Inside

Jun 20, 2016 | by Lynn Powell

Perspectives from those who work and live in the criminal justice system.

Please send pitches for Life Inside to ehager@themarshallproject.org. We’re looking for 400 to 1,400-word nonfiction essays about a surprising, personal experience you had with the system — whether you’re a lawyer, prisoner, judge, victim, police officer, or otherwise work or live inside the system. Poetry, fiction, essays about experiences that are not directly related to criminal justice, and op-eds will not be accepted.
