Well it finally happened. I’m now a paid writer.
Following my interview with 10 daily last week, I was asked if I could contribute some articles on my experiences in the prison system. I’m very proud to report the first one was published today. I decided I’d start by writing about libraries in prison, and the refuge I found in them after finding out the system gives you nothing constructive to do with your sentence. You can read it here. The article even drops a link to my art account on Instagram!
I’ve been asked to write another piece, but I’m got two major university assessments due at the end of the month so I probably won’t get a chance till June. You can rest assured they’ll be more though.
