In 2003 POOR Magazine launched a new branch to its ever expanding web of media resistance, POOR Press and its education arm; Digital Resistance.

In this program, very low and no income adults and youth are given the opportunity to create a book from start to finish, beginning with creative writing, narrative essays and poetry and then progressing to graphic design and layout publishing and promotion. Since its inception, POOR Press has provided revolutionary media access for the silenced voices of 49 youth, adult and elder poverty scholars by publishing their books of artwork, poetry and short stories, thereby sharing their urgently needed scholarship, voices and solutions with the world.

The 2011 POOR Press collection includes six revolutionary books addressing issues ranging from in/migration, family separation, abuse, the non-profit industrial complex, landlessness, police brutality to homelessness and poverty.

Written from the voice of youth, adults and elders in poverty who are never heard in corporate and even independent media these pieces of writing and artwork are truly unlike anything else found in the corporate world of publishing today. These books allow the reader to experience and learn about the very personal struggles and resistance of each author.
