The Trust regularly receives a large volume of letters, emails and supportive messages of solidarity, etc. In recent years there has been a big increase in enquiries from young students writing essays or theses which cover such themes as prison literature, the legacy of the Fermanagh/South Tyrone bye-elections and the electoral rise of Sinn Féin.

All queries are answered and most requests we facilitate as best we can.

We also receive requests from writers and publishers for permission to use extracts from the writings of Bobby Sands. All Bobby’s writings are copyrighted but the Trust encourages fair use, though permission is required to reproduce or use any of Bobby’s writings in a commercial context [for example, anthologies or professional drama productions]. Please contact the Secretary of the Trust for permissions:
