Jayne Thompson teaches English and creative writing at Widener University. She is the director of the Chester Writers House in Chester, PA, a non-profit community writing center. She taught Accelerated Literature at Chester High School for one school year as a special project and has taught in many afterschool programs for students as young as eight. In addition, she teaches at a prison in Pennsylvania, S.C.I. Graterford, and recently published an anthology of writings geared towards young people with her incarcerated students. Serving House Books published Letters to My Younger Self: An Anthology of Writings by Incarcerated Men at S.C.I. Graterford and a Writing Workbook in 2014. The project is entirely non-profit; any profit from the book goes to providing free copies to young people at juvenile detention facilities and high schools where she offers writing workshops. She is working on a second anthology that gathers the voices of incarcerated women.
