Submissions for Issue Two have now closed. Find out more here.

We would love to pay our writers – we really would, but we’d love to pay our admin staff too. As it is, paperboats has been put together using our own time and funds in solidarity with activists worldwide who dedicate their time and energies to the climate movement without recompense.
