Justin Montgomery

I taught myself to write creatively, draw, paint, play music, sing and act over the eleven years I have been in prison. My poetry and artwork will be published in CÆSURA, the Journal of Poetry Center San José, this year. Recently one of my plays has been accepted for performance.

Currently I am incarcerated in Washington State at the Stafford Creek Correction Center. I have under two years remaining on my sentence for 2nd-degree murder. You may contact me through inmateclassifieds.com.
