At Witness Magazine, we often hear from writers from all over the world, but we can fulfill our mission, as stated, to amplify extraordinary voices, and highlight pieces that speak to the present moment in an enduring and distinctive way by engaging with our local community.
To that end, we worked with Shaun Griffin, a poet who teaches a poetry workshop at the Northern Nevada Correctional Center, to highlight some of the voices and writers he has worked with. Shaun and his workshop also put together their running chapbook series Razor Wire. The Community series will be published ongoing starting tomorrow.
We loved these poems and essays and hope you will too.
