"People need to realize that you cannot have an art scene without artist responsibility. You cannot participate in a community while contributing to systemic issues." Matty Steinkamp
If you ask Dick, his most special endeavor was the establishment of a Writer's Workshop in the Arizona State Prison system. His latest book of non-fiction, Crossing the Yard: Thirty Years as a Prison Volunteer, will change everything you think you know about the creative men who may also be doing hard time. I am proud to call him my friend, proud of his notable contributions to Arizona, and phenomentally honored to be able to spend personal time learning from him.
