This is a Page to Stage workshop—a creative writing and theater class conducted by Deborah Tobola, founding artistic director of the Poetic Justice Project. Held in a chapel on CMC's West Facility, this day’s activity was creation of “graffiti poems” from words cut out of magazines.

The students’ creative writing will be incorporated into an original play, to be performed later this year. The class is sponsored by the William James Association as part of the Arts in Corrections program. Funding for these photographs was provided by the California Arts Council.

At the request of several artists, prints of these images are available at cost; just go to the LARGE image and click on the shopping basket. If the FOTOMOTO site does not open right away, please try again.
