RISE (Reading in Secure Environments), launched in October 2012, is an exciting new project between The Reader Organisation and literature festivals across the country.
Funded by Arts Council England, RISE brings high-quality, challenging contemporary writers to readers in secure criminal justice and mental health care settings in partnership with an exciting range of literature festivals around the UK.
RISE forges the link between these dynamic annual literature festivals and the work The Reader Organisation does year-round in a variety of mental health care and criminal justice sites by bringing authors directly to readers who could not otherwise attend festival events. Each guest author will appear in the public festival as well as in the secure site, thereby providing a link between audiences.
