Not Shut Up is a national quarterly magazine featuring art and writing from prisons, secure hospitals and other places of custody. The recently launched NSUP Academy is a formal network of professional writers with experience of incarceration, all aiming to reach new audiences, generate income and overcome barriers to mainstream success. This private launch event is a chance for the Academy members to meet, showcase and discuss their work.
