Free Write Arts & Literacy provides one-on-one literacy tutoring, creative writing workshops, visual art workshops, music production workshops, publishing and public performance opportunities to youth detained in the Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Center (CCJTDC). Through increased literacy, written self-expression, exposure to and study of the performing, visual and literary arts, our project seeks to reduce recidivism and help our students find meaningful pathways to self-expression and to further education.

In the summer of 2000, Free Write began working one-on-one with incarcerated youth in hopes of improving their print literacy skills. The program readily expanded to include creative writing workshops, resulting in a densely packed and widely distributed anthologies of student writing.
