Beautiful Sentence

Female prisoners experience the liberating effect of creative writing with the help of inspirational poet Leah Thorn.
Poet Leah Thorn is writer-in-residence at HMP Bronzefield, a high security women’s prison in Middlesex. Through her workshops we meet a variety of women striving to find a voice through creative writing.
Personal histories, emotions and inner conflicts are revealed through their poems and interactions. The film explores the liberating and healing effect of creativity.

    “They’ve now got me to the point of actually writing the poem instead of self-harming.” Ah, the power of creative writing!

    This was so powerful and beautiful. I hope one day to become a psychiatrist and put a focus of therapy on writing and creative expression…although this clip was short, it was beautiful and important. I wish everyone could see it!
