Save Your Spot

We will be celebrating community at our 2nd Annual Dinner Event. This year we'll be dining indoors, at Redemption Church of the Central Coast in Nipomo, CA: great food, live entertainment, raffles, and more. Come join us as we honor several guests with an award in 4 categories; Hope, Healing, Reform, and Reducing Recidivism.

Making a Difference

Authors Inside is achieving more with our initiatives than ever before, and we are very proud of the progress we continue to make. Below are some of our most recent projects. Learn more about what we do, who we help, and how we work every day to create a lasting impact.


Our services are built upon a writing program designed to encourage hope, healing and reform to reduce recidivism in individuals impacted by the justice system. Replicating the same trauma-informed, restorative practice techniques used by our 3 formerly incarcerated staff, Emmanuel, George and Otis now offer the below exceptional programs to help participants at any stage in the restorative or preventative process.
