How long has it been since you received a hand-written letter in the mail? Remember how it feels to read words chosen carefully by someone who believes you’re worth the time it took to share their thoughts; someone thinking of you with every loop and in each letter, offering glimpses into what they held important. Words of encouragement, perhaps inspiring or something to make you laugh. Words touch like nothing else can.
Remember how you found one of their letters waiting in the mailbox, you couldn’t wait to tear open the envelope and read what they had written. Maybe you’d read the letter as fast as you could, hitting all the main points, gathering the gist of how life was going for them since your last correspondence. Then you’d read the letter again, this time very slowly, taking in every detail they shared.
You can have that again by making a positive difference in the life of an incarcerated person. You have the power to transcend the prison walls, to promote rehabilitation, to restore dignity, and to champion human rights. Mail call is often the darkest hour of the day because many of these people are forgotten. Daily they are reminded that contact with the outside world is a privilege they no longer enjoy, a privilege many acknowledge they were responsible for losing. Receiving mail can lift their spirits and give them hope. Some will never live outside of prison walls again. Others are serving shorter sentences, hoping that good behavior and a desire to live a better life will lead to their release and a productive life. These are human beings. You must ask yourself this: Could you, or someone you love, have been sent to prison for some offense you committed but later regretted?
Written letters can be reminders of an inmate’s connection to the outside world and Inmate Penpals @ Let Our Voices Echo is designed to quickly and easily connect you with inmates whose backgrounds and interests may inspire you to pick up a pen and become pen pals with them. All of the inmates listed enjoy getting letters; especially those letters which help build their confidence. It can be a lot of fun communicating. Whether you’re trying to cultivate a little romance, nurture a friendship or simply stay connected we ask that you treat these inmates with dignity and respect. They have their own interests, hopes, and dreams. Most of them want to turn their lives around and be more successful when they return to regular life. Let’s give them a reason to hope for a better future.
Most correspondence will be via the United States Postal Service, and although many inmates are allowed incoming email through J-Pay, prisoners do not have access to the internet so your responses will be in the form of a handwritten letter delivered to your mailbox.
PLEASE NOTE: The use of this site is completely free for inmates and those who chose to write them. I do not solicit monetary donations or expect to gain financial profit from posting their profiles. Keep in mind all information is provided by the prisoners themselves, we do not guarantee the accuracy. The inmates listed are convicted felons and caution should be exercised. When you find a prisoner you would like to correspond with, simply write directly to them using the mailing address listed in their bio.
If you wish to submit an inmates bio to Inmate Penpals @ Let Our Voices Echo please leave YOUR contact information in the comment box. All comments are manually approved therefore your information will remain completely private. I’ll contact you directly for a positive introductory combination letter/bio letter to the person your inmate would like to meet and if possible let me know where I can find a picture or pictures. When you respond I’ll need the following information.

As the saying goes “You’ll never have a second chance to make a first impression” and first impressions mean just about everything or at least they’re 90% of one’s judgment, so hopefully this introduction will spark your interest and possibly be the beginning of a new friendship with no finish line. However, just in case my profile pic didn’t wholeheartedly grab your attention let me tell you a little something about myself. CLICK HERE TO KEEP READING ABOUT Akira
