Jim Reese believes writing helps people process who they are and what they’ve done. Whether he’s working with prison inmates or college students, he finds everyone has a story to tell – and that story can be the key to unlock the person they are meant to be.

In the conversation, Lynne and Jim discussed his work teaching creative writing in federal prison as well as his tenure as a professor at Mount Marty University in Yankton, South Dakota.
