Hi! I've been writing to inmates for about 10 years. Never have I met any. A few exceptions are when my friend's brother goes to prison or a few friends. But I have plenty of letters from inmates, but I threw alot of them away. I started writing to a guy (David) a few years ago and I started liking him but didn't say nothing to him because thought that's not what he wanted. Well it turned out that he likes me also! He also wrote me two very nice poems (I Feel You) and (In A Very Special Way). He also drew me something and everything on the drawing means something. From the clouds to the heart to the cut on the heart to the two birds etc. I've written to another inmate (Alex) for going on 10 years. I have all his letters. You may e-mail me at Rico_2407@yahoo.com Good luck on your getting a book together.
