Since our founding in 2011, MPWW has grown into the largest and most enduring prison-based literary organization in the country. Our classes and other programs have had a real, demonstrable impact on the lives of thousands of incarcerated Minnesotans. What’s more, that impact has rippled out to their families, neighborhoods, and the community-at-large.

To ensure that we can continue this vital work, can you help us reach our goal with a donation of any amount? MPWW is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and every donation is fully tax-deductible.
