Prison Stories is Voices of the South's latest outreach program, providing a year-long writing and theatre intensive for women currently serving time in the Shelby County Prison System.  

Elaine Blanchard believes in the strength of storytelling, and finds herself spending hours with women who are incarcerated in the Shelby County Division of Corrections.  Blanchard says she, too, has felt “trapped” in her life, which inspired her to work with women behind bars.
