Glimpses from Inside

Elizabeth Haysom is presently incarcerated at the Fluvanna Correctional Center for Women in Troy, Virginia. Each of these essays originally appeared in the Fluvanna Review. Following the last to appear, in January 2008, the paper noted that she told them she would not write any more essays in this series, as she was planning to write a book.

Update, December 2, 2015 Ms Haysom has resumed the writing of essays about her present life, posting them to tumblr.
