Join Our Crowdfunder

Thank you to everyone who helped us reach our crowdfunding goal!

Our Koestler Voices Vol. 4 Crowdfunder is now closed.

This year we are putting together the fourth edition of Koestler Voices: New Poetry From Prisons, an anthology of poetry from the 2022 and 2023 Koestler Awards. With your help and generosity, we reached our £5,000 goal and raised the necessary funds to publish around 50 award winners’ poetry works, and share copies of the anthology with prison libraries across the UK.

If you are still looking for ways to show your support for writers in the criminal justice system, why not consider Sponsoring an Award for a writer in a secure establishment?

Koestler Voices: New Poetry from Prisons Vol. 4 will be available to purchase via our online shop later this autumn, or in our exhibition pop-up shop – make sure you get your hands on a copy before they’re gone.
