Texas Outlaw Press is a liberty-oriented business owned by Jeff Callaway. Texas Outlaw Press is a publisher of poetry, short stories, novels, articles, photography, art, and music. They also provides a wide variety of Texas Outlaw Press merchandise. They are passionately involved in politics and social issues, such as prison reform and legalization. In the future they hope to become a platform and a voice for those incarcerated for non violent drug offenses in Texas. "Texas Outlaw Press was founded when my good friend Jeff Callaway was sent to prison for the non-violent offense of possession of psilocybin mushrooms. Together we founded the Press to publish chapbooks for readings both while Jeff was in and when he got out of the penitentiary system. The legacy of our inception is our on-going interest in working with artist who have had to suffer the indignities and injustices of the hypocritical drug laws in Texas and the U.S. In the coming years we hope to shape the Press into a helpful resource for artists trapped in the Texas prison system for non-violent drug possession. We are also interested in collaborating with Texas's artist and political communities to bring further awareness to the injustices of Marijuana Prohibition and the harms to people's lives caused by incarcerating non-violent drug offenders. Ultimately we would like to help educate citizens and voters about the negative consequences of current drug laws and the benefits of treatment vs. incarceration in regards to serious addiction issues. At the same time we'd like to offer a rewarding forum for self-expression to those negatively impacted by those laws and to our readers and listeners." -John-Paxton Gremillion (Co-Founder) Texas Outlaw Press
