THE WINNing ENTRY IN 2020
FROM THE TEAM: One Day at a Time is a stunningly brave and raw piece of writing. It confronts what is, for most people, the unimaginable reality of life in a prison with such humanity and grit that you can’t help but read it and feel both horror and deep empathy for everyone involved. We created this competition in the hope of finding writers who were willing to tackle difficult, sensitive subject material from their personal experience with creativity and courage, and that is exactly what Alex South has done.
