A collaboration between Briarpatch, the Inreach Collective, and Free Lands Free Peoples, the Prison Abolition Issue started by writing to prisoners with a single question: “Can you imagine a world without prisons?” The resulting special issue puts prisoners' voices and demands front and centre, archiving their struggles and amplifying their demands for change.

In this issue, you'll find thought-provoking essays, vivid first-person narratives, impactful artwork, powerful poetry, and more work produced exclusively by incarcerated writers and artists.

It’s the perfect issue to share with your community, to read together, and to use for discussion and planning. To help make that possible, we’re offering discounted rates for bulk order purchases of print copies.

Please note that the issue is available in two cover variants, one with text and one without text. We also have a limited quantity without staples. If you're planning to send copies inside prisons, please contact John at [email protected] to finalize the details of your order.
