Voices Uncaged is the shared blog of the women writers workshops at the Fairbanks and Lemon Creek (Juneau) Correctional Centers. We meet every Monday afternoon in the correctional centers’ Education Centers. Writers of all levels are invited to read, discuss, and write with us during workshop. The writing on this blog consists of anonymous entries submitted by women in these workshops.
