CRCI Writing Workshops Part 1 and 2

CRCI Writing Workshops Part 1 and 2

The Prison Education Program has been developing writing workshops over the past couple of years to support current Inside-Out students in improving their confidence and to offer them some of the writing support that they could receive from on-campus resources if they were on-campus UO students. We have been developing a format that we have most successfully delivered now at Columbia River Correctional Institution: Academic Writing Parts 1 and 2.

Building Something New: The Portland CRCI Circle

Building Something New: The Portland CRCI Circle

The UO PEP has expanded our “satellite campuses” to include Columbia River Correctional Institution in Portland. This minimum-security prison has become a space for current UO students as well as UO alumni to come together to offer workshops and book discussions. We are now committed to meeting at least once a month, and to diversifying our program offerings to best serve repeat participants, as well as engage new ones.
