Book Description

Education Behind Bars: A Win-WIn Strategy For Maximum Security - About the Author Christopher Zoukis, a passionate advocate of education for prisoners, is himself incarcerated in a medium-security federal prison. He teaches writing courses to fellow prisoners, and he has been aggressively pursuing an advanced education from Ohio University where he maintains a 4.0 gpa. He does not allow incarceration to waste his years or halt the progress of his life. ?I may have come to prison as a confused kid who had made poor decisions,? Zoukis says, ?but through education, I became determined to create a better life. We can?t let the past define us. We have to do something today to make tomorrow what we want it to be.' Zoukis is also a staff writer for 3 legal publications: the State and Federal Criminal Law Review, the Texas Criminal Law Review, and The Update: Federal Criminal and Immigration Law. He is the winner of two 2011 Pen American Center Prison Writing Awards (one in drama and the other for fiction) and is an approved reviewer for the New York Journal of Books and for Blog Critics.com. His work appeared in hard-copy and online publications such as the Kansas City Star, the Sacramento Bee, the Seattle-Post Intelligencer, the Midwest Book Review, Rain Taxi, Radiant Attack, Innocence Denied, and others, much of which was syndicated by the Associated Press, Google News, and Yahoo News.
