THE CELL DOOR IS… a Magazine written by prisoners or people associated with the prison system. Open the cell door and meet the men and women behind bars. The Cell Door Magazine features articles that tell what the incarceration experience is like while in prison and how the ex-con fairs once s/he is back on the street. Topics include but are not limited to prison issues. Our goal is to develop an audience who reads THE CELL DOOR MAGAZINE for its educational and entertainment value and quality, learning in the process that prisoners are intelligent, personable, talented human beings.
