Paper Chained Issue 6 released
As you may recall, I took over as editor of the magazine Paper Chained in May last year. My first issue as editor of the then annual magazine, Issue 5, came out in January this year. A couple big developments saw a dramatic increase in our number of readers, and I subsequently applied for funding for the magazine, as it had grown well beyond a size where I could continue to volunteer my time on it. Thankfully, the wonderful people at the Community Restorative Centre answered the call, and I'm pleased to announce that I've now commenced employment with them to produce the magazine quarterly. Issue 6, the first of the quarterly issues, has just been released today. You can download it for free from the brand-new Paper Chained website. Hard copy issues will be posted free to incarcerated people on our mailing list this coming week.
Paper Chained is the magazine that I wish had of existed when I was in prison. It accepts art and writing contributions from currently and formerly incarcerated people, and also prints information and articles of interest to those impacted by the criminal justice system. If you know any current or former prisoners who may be interested in either receiving a copy, or submitting art or writing for our next issue, do let them know about it. And stay tuned for Issue 7, which will be released in September.
