The Link 2008


The Link was a series of magazines I produced with adult male prisoners on the ‘drug free’ therapeutic community wing of a cat B prison. Prisoners wrote all the stories, apart from the Subutex information.

Copies were distributed to every prison in the country. The idea had been to eventually get the prisoners to design, distribute and manage the entire production process of ‘The Link’. Although another issue was produced, this did not happen, as (partly) the editorial team of prisoners I was working with kept getting ‘shipped off’ the ‘drug free wing’ . . . no prizes for guessing what for?
