Paper Chained is a journal of writing and artistic expressions from individuals affected by incarceration that was founded in 2017. In 2021, Paper Chained welcomed Damien Linnane as the new editor.

Paper Chained is a free, not-for profit publication funded primarily by the Community Restorative Centre and our sponsors, About Time For Justice and The University of Southern Queensland. It is posted free to incarcerated people in Australia and New Zealand, and is available for download for free from our website.

If you are currently in prison, have experienced time in prison, or you have a loved one in prison, we welcome your contributions to this journal. Contributions from those supportive of prison reform will also be considered. Learn more about submitting a contribution here. Contributions are welcome from people worldwide.

Please contact us if you would like to support the journal financially through sponsorship. If you wish to donate to Paper Chained, you can do so via the PayPal account of our publisher, Vigilante Studios.
