Written by men incarecerated at Oklahoma's Joseph Harp Correctional Center, Emergence offers readers a forthright, powerful, magnificently written anthology of prose and poetry that tells truths seldom spoken aloud.                                                     
                                                      —Jeanetta Calhoun Mish, Oklahoma State Poet Laureate, 2017-2020

The writers in Emergence are all incarcerated and they are the forgotten, hidden ones in society. Their humanity and life comes roaring off the page. Humor, anger, despair, and hope all intermingle in these pages to bring forth voices that demand to be heard, that must be heard.

                                                                —Ellen Stackable, Founder & Executive Director, Poetic Justice
