A Prisoner Testimonial : "I thanked God this morning for the lovely People in my life and for the overflowing gift of love that is in my heart for you and my penfriends. It's a very far step from the heart of ill emotions that I used to have years ago."
"As a journalist who has lived and worked in the United States, the horror of death row is one of the issues that never leaves you. The thread of humanity that Human Writes manages to sustain with men and women on death row is a profound contribution to keep alive the hope of life. Capital punishment is now on the retreat in America, but the numbers awaiting their fate are still very considerable. I am very honoured to have become a Patron of Human Writes and will hope to do my best to put my shoulder to the wheel". Jon Snow Broadcaster and journalist Patron, Human Writes
"In such an inhuman system small moments of human contact make a big difference. That's why I support Human Writes and why I would encourage you to do the same." Gary Younge, Author and US-based feature writer for the Guardian Patron, Human Writes
