Prison Resources

As you read through PLN you'll notice that few if any of our articles are reprints from other publications. We think it's better to be original than to duplicate the efforts of others and we have only 10 pages to get our message out. Whenever possible we try to let you know about other good prison 'zines. Below is a partial list of prisoner oriented 'zines. Unless noted, all are free to prisoners. Due to space I can't list all the 'zines I get. I have contact with prison reform/struggle groups all over the US, Europe and elsewhere. If you have a specialized need for some type of information or such, drop me (Paul Wright) a line, let me know what you're looking for and I'll see if I can help. If you publish a 'zine or such and I'm not on your mailing list feel free to add me to it.
