Deborah Appleman, Hollis L. Caswell Professor of Educational Studies, Chair of Educational Studies, and Director of American Studies, is featured in a recent Star Tribune story, "Writing workshop cultivates prisoners' creative sides" (8/5/2014). The piece highlights the Minnesota Prison Writing Workshop (MPWW), which leads creative writing classes at various state prisons. Founded in 2011, today the MPWW leads classes in poetry, spoken word, oral storytelling, children’s literature, fantasy, essay and more at six state prisons. Hundreds of incarcerated men have taken courses through the MPWW and twenty-two students also have mentors “on the outside.”
