About Hours: If there is no one around by 9pm on weeknights, the volunteer staff is free to leave, so be sure to arrive by 9pm. There should be no problem getting in, as the front door is equipped with a buzzer system for post-business hours.
Kickstarter - From a Number to a Name: The IPRC Prison Project
"In this class I've learned the power of words. In this class I've learned about the power of writing. In this class I've found freedom inside a prison. In this class I've written about hard time, laughter and fate. In this class each week I was able to escape."
--Akiaz King, Program Graduate

The IPRC's prison-writing program empowers incarcerated men with creative writing, self-publishing, and communication skills. Every Tuesday evening since 2012, the IPRC has traveled to the Columbia River Correctional Institution (CRCI) in North Portland to facilitate a writing and publishing workshop with incarcerated adult men. Each session lasts 8-10 weeks and culminates in the publication of a class zine, From A Number to A Name.
