HMP Humber Prison Workshop

Open Bridges includes a series of workshops hosted by Lou Duffy-Howard with creative writers Christina Lewis and Russ Litten who are working with schools, prisons and community venues to explore freedom and the impact of freedoms denied in the world today.

Writer Russ Litten and I spent the afternoon working with a group of prisoners in HMP Humber. We discussed Hull culture – east and west, the river and the bridges culminating in pieces of creative writing or spoken word about the meaning of freedom to them.

They all produced astonishing pieces of work. We have got permission from HMP Humber to publish the following pieces of work.
