Dear colleagues and friends,

Today our partners over at the JJIE (Juvenile Justice Information
Exchange), based out of Kennesaw, GA, a national website that is the
only publication/site covering juvenile justice and related issues
nationally on a consistent, daily basis, picked up and is featuring a
piece by a new Beat writer, Mathew Edwards.

Mathew is a participant in The Beat Within’s monthly writing workshop inside San Quentin State Prison.  He writes about “Addicted to the Street Life,” and what lead him to serving a life sentence as a teenager.

Addicted to the Street Life

If you want to read other fabulous entries from The Beat Within that
the JJIE has posted, which we encourage you to do, here’s the link.
