The third issue of Paper Chained, an annual writing journal aimed at people in or affected by the prison system, has been completed and is ready to print. Much like last year’s issue (pictured), issue three contains contributions from many people, including myself. Unfortunately the good people who run the journal haven’t raised enough money to actually send it into prisons yet, so it’s currently stuck in limbo.
Journals like Paper Chained help give inmates a voice. Little things like this can really make a big difference to people inside, cut off from loved one and regular support. Plus it’s one of only two Australian publications specifically aimed at prisoners that I’m aware of.
