Writing to prison inmates as pen pals - what to be mindful of?

I have not gotten involved with a church prison ministry yet, but I have considered writing letters to prison inmates (people I don't know and have no connection) as pen-pal ministry. What are the risks involved, and what should I be aware of (law and procedure-wise?) I won't divulge any personal info to them, of course - more like letting them have someone to talk to.
