Iron City Magazine is an online and print journal devoted entirely to writing and art from the prison world.
Tips From the Editor
It is our hope that through this creative platform, incarcerated artists and writers find value in their stories, fuel for personal growth, and pride in their accomplishments. Inmates are, first and foremost, people. They own stories worthy of remembering. Iron City Magazine aims to highlight these stories in a way more permanent than a private journal.
We strive to remind the general public that inmates can make meaningful contributions to their communities. So often, this potential is forgotten or overshadowed by their crimes. By validating inmates’ humanity through writing and art, we encourage a culture of understanding and transformation.
