Letters from Inside

A Gazette series
The "Letters from Inside" award-winning Gazette series was edited by Revan Schendler of the Elm Street Think Tank, which meets inside the Greenfield Jail. The series, which ran in December 2015, consists of letters from seven inmates to readers of the Gazette to challenge common stereotypes about prisoners. Their letters appear below:

How and why: An introduction to the series


Erikah A. Carter: Whose body is this?


Devin Hurlburt: Coming to grips with myself


Jeremiah Longe: Where are the monsters?


Joseph Kuntz: A constant crippling pain


Ricky Aviles: Facing stigma head on


Clay Perry: The new norm


Kerry S. Williamson: Anger mismanagement
