DEAD MALL
PRESS

Handmade chapbooks

& digital editions

A majority of all earnings will be donated to mutual aid, anti-carceral, and social justice organizations.


Dead Mall is a Poets Union member press. 

For more info on our origins, practices, and principles, please see this announcement.

 

CURRENT FUND-RAISING PERIOD

Currently, 60% of all payments to the press will be donated to New Leaf New Life, an organization in the press's hometown (Bloomington, IN) that provides aid and services to incarcerated people and those reintegrating into society. I am proud to support their wide-ranging work against the dehumanizing effects of the carceral system.

Right now, there is no set time limit on this fund-raising period, but I will provide receipts publicly after a significant portion has been collected and donated.


For a summary of our previous fund-raising period, during which we raised $500 for the Transgender Education Network of Texas (TENT), please read here.
