The local online newspaper, The New Haven Independent, christened the “Prison Diaries” in 2012 but then had to cancel them because the non-profit newspaper violated its mission statement by publishing items like the diaries (i.e. not hard news) from a Niantic prison (i.e. not New Haven).  This is “Prison Diaries” new cell.

Many readers wrote to Chandra while she was still at York Correctional Institution, asking her to continue the Diaries. She continued to write but had no outlet. Because no prison offers its residents internet access, this blog remained impossible until she was released on March 18, 2014.

Now the Diaries have been reopened. The entries were written while Chandra was incarcerated so they are not narrated in real time.

    First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Appreciate it!

    The Virginian-Pilot newspaper (Norfolk, VA, Sunday, August 9, 2015, p.21) published your informative piece on parole and its impact in Virginia. I would think you would have had some response to it, given there were ways to contact you. Has this happened? Do you think that persons may not contact you, due to the past charges against you (now on appeal) in regard to identity-theft? Just wondered…
