Writing Marius

Marius Mason #04672-061
FMC Fort Worth
P.O. Box 15330
Fort Worth, TX 76119

Letters are one of the only ways Marius can connect to the outside world. He loves to hear about people’s projects, what they’re reading, sensory information, animals, daily life, political thoughts. Even brief postcards, especially if they are sent regularly, help him feel connected. You can also send in printed out copies of articles, which helps him keep up to date on the world.

Marius has a list of 100 pre-approved people he can write to; this means he will be able to receive your letter but until your name is added to his list he cannot write back.  Marius can request people to be added/removed but this takes time and is not always granted.
