"Peter, You Are a Writer"
Fewell, Peter
Adults Learning, v23 n1 p12-13 Aut 2011
In prison, a man has the opportunity to learn something that is lacking in the world outside: respect. He respects those who respect him, because he has learned the value of respect. Another important opportunity is the chance to get on the education ladder and to earn some self-respect. The author was assessed as "illiterate" when he was jailed aged 45. In this article, he explains how prison education helped him overcome his fear of learning and become a writer.
