Over several years, David Shapiro taught a Creative Writing/ Critical Thinking course on one prison yard in Arizona, where more than half the students are serving life sentences for murder. Though most of them never completed high school, their responses to some unusual writing assignments show an unpolished brilliance that ranges from transcendent enlightenment to raw pain and suffering.
