You — our incarcerated readers — write and send more than 50 letters to San Quentin News each month. SQNews staff members read and record all your mail, and respond to about 90% of your letters.
SQNews is currently experiencing procedural challenges sending mail out from SQSP into the U.S. Postal Service. We recently learned that many of our outgoing letters in the last year were postponed for months, and we apologize for any delays you have experienced in receiving our responses to you.
We are doing our best to get all the backlogged letters, newspapers and newsletters we have sent to our readers and donors delivered to you soon.
We truly appreciate your compliments and critiques because they keep us in tune with what you need and expect from your newspaper and remind us that SQNews’ mission is to serve our incarcerated community. Your stories and art provide the essential, diverse voices and perspectives of the incarcerated that SQNews shares with the world.
Meanwhile, thank you for your contributions and for your patience while we work to improve our correspondence with you, the valuable readers and supporters of SQNews.
