I've very pleased to let everyone know the latest issue of my art and writing magazine for incarcerated people, Paper Chained, has now been released. As always, you are welcome to read and download the issue for free from the Paper Chained website. The printed edition has already been posted to all people in custody on our mailing list.
This issue has proved to be our most exciting yet. Among other incredible content, you'll be able to see an exclusive interview I had with Nigel Poor and Earlonne Woods, the hosts of the award-winning podcast Ear Hustle. And special thanks to Random House for allowing us permission to re-use one of the illustrations I created for their book, This Is Ear Hustle, for this issues cover art.
Its been a huge month my friends. My live interview with San Francisco Public Library regarding This Is Ear Hustle couldn't have gone better; you can watch the recording here. In the last month I've also done a radio interview with ABC Radio National, and a syndicated print interview that appeared in several Australian Newspapers. You can find an archive of all interviews in the Press and Media section.
Most recently, however, I've done an interview with the publication Australian Doctor, regarding my current campaign focusing on the need for Medicare services in prison. I've also organised a conference in Sydney on December 5 in Sydney regarding this issue, and how we can lobby for cahange. If you're involved in health, law, or the criminal justice system in any way, there are still a handful of spots left to attend in person: see our Evenbrite link here. To attend online only, register here; anyone is welcome to attend online. If you're unfamiliar with the little-known issue of the Medicare exclusion in prisons and want to know more, check our this report I co-rote about the issue that was published earlier this year by the University of Newcastle.
