Inmate's Personal Ad/Bio Undo Changes

Describe this inmate in 250 words or less.
Additional text is $5 per 50 words over 250 on an ad.

Ad Text Tip: Describe the type of person the inmate would like to find. Be open about the inmate in their ad; share enough information that will allow the reader to learn something about the inmate that they can connect with so they will WANT to write to them and get to know them better. DO NOT include in the inmate ad any of the information Penacon has already asked on the previous page (example: age, date of birth). All of that information will be shown on the inmate's profile page already. No need to repeat, this will make better use of the inmate's ad area.

Include one photo of the inmate at no extra charge. Ads with photos definitely get more attention. Additional photos are $5 each.

Photo Tips
  • "Smiling" photos make a difference! Our inmate profiles with smiling photos receive more responses. Inmates want to appear friendly and approachable. FACT: Most people will not write to someone who looks angry or intimidating.
  • For best results upload a digital or scanned photo. Photos of photos tend to be blurry and reduce your loved ones chances of success in finding a pen pal.

Drag and drop photos of the inmate below or click the BROWSE button (JPGs or PNGs only please, no greater than 4MB).
