Powder Springs, GA, November 07, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Prisonworld Magazine, “The Preferred Entertainment Magazine” is published on a seven-issue basis in order to communicate with those behind the wall. It is very unique in conception and the only magazine especially for the prison system that showcases poetry, letters of inspiration, thoughts, comments, and opinions, individually and collectively, of inmates. The magazine also has a large “free world” subscriber base. Many people find the magazine interesting because of its positive messages, humor, resources and trivia. The magazine is highly demanded and anticipated in all of the institutions.
Dawah International, LLC has formulated a pen pal service where men and women across the United States who have a desire to communicate with someone that is freedom challenged. As well, inmates can communicate with one another through free pen pal ads. Inmates can become VIP members with special privileges. The magazine also offers trivia and scrabble contests, surveys, religious content, and much more. The magazine reaches out to all of the high profile inmates from celebrities to CEO’s. The feedback has been positive and Prisonworld Magazine treats all inmates equally.
The letters received from inmates sometimes describes the crimes committed and the lifestyles before prison. These lifestyles range from doctors, lawyers, policeman, nurses, teachers, secretaries, financial analysts, personal trainers, college students and the list goes on and on. “Normally the inmates tell us that they have been railroaded and issues and violations of police officers, DA’s and even judges,” says Rufus Triplett, Jr., Editor-in-Chief. “It’s really sad that the majority of the letters detailing these discrepancies are from African-Americans.”
The magazine has secured advertisers to help the inmates use their time wisely by seeking their freedom, strengthening their education and skills, and reading and writing books. In keeping with the attitude of giving its readers what they want, the magazine is also seeking advertisers for typing services, gift stores, lawyers/paralegals, jewelry stores, audio books/bookstores, authors (self-published, African-American, self-help, etc) and entrepreneurial services. Jenny Triplett, Editor-in-Chief, says, “We receive several letters every week requesting all kinds of services. Even though we would like to, we cannot handle all of the prisoners needs. We know there are people out there who are willing to think outside the box.” Prisonworld Magazine offers better than competitive rates and an extremely unique target market. With over 2.3 million incarcerated, anyone who advertises in the magazine has a direct link to a community with its own market share.
Dawah is a family owned and operated company established to bring a positive vibe to the prison community. The owners are originally from Michigan, with ties in Toledo, Ohio and Florida, and have been based in the Atlanta area for over 15 years. When asked the question what would make you start a magazine like this, the owners respond intelligently “We hope to bring new and different ideas to the multimedia game as well as enlighten views and perceptions of an uninformed and forgotten society.”
