Short search for prison writing tutor?
WHAT luck! The ideal candidate for two posts teaching inmates at a Suffolk jail may be right under prison bosses' noses – and you could say the jobs have the abilities of a certain prisoner FF8282 written all over them.

City College Norwich is advertising to fill two posts teaching young people at Hollesley Bay prison – and for shedding light on subjects such as "literacy" and "creative writing", who better than liar and best-selling writer Jeffrey Archer, currently serving four years' of porridge at the prison near Woodbridge?!
With great amusement Evening Star reader Philip Kirby spotted the advertisement placed by City College Norwich, who hold the contract of delivering educational services.
One of the instructors will also have to brush up the young inmates' grasp of numeracy – so for someone who has problems with dates and using a diary, as his perjury trial demonstrated, Jeff perhaps might not be the best person.
But the disgraced lord does have the previous teaching experience the ad asks for, of course. He was a PE teacher back in 1964.

The salaries for the posts would not quite rival the millions the former Tory boss has earned from penning books such as Cane and Abel and Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less.
The literacy and numeracy co-ordinator commands a £29,013 salary while the creative writing tutor would get £18.60 for an hour-long session.
Perhaps he was brushing up his CV when comedian Billy Connolly popped over for a visit last week.
Books that Archer could get his students to read:
A Prison Diary – by Jeffrey Archer
The Green Mile – Stephen King
Rumpole of the Bailey – John Mortimer
Escape from Alcatraz – John Campbell Bruce
Papillon – Henri Charriere
