Down in the Dirt is a source of inspiration and a place where faint voices of the oppressed, unrepresented and unprivileged can be heard.”

Ordering copies of
Down in the Dirt

2010 issues (perfect-bound 84 page books) are available for printer sale; links are available at both the issues page for the issue and the actual issue wen page. Links to ordering issues for 2010 also appear with the accepted writing in the writings section of http://scars.tv, so people who read the writing can then purchase a print copy of the issue.





     All magazine published from Scars Publications are released on the web — as a free downloadable PDF file (e-book, or e-issue), as well as on a web page. In this way people can enjoy the magazine on the Internet for free.
    Down in the Dirt magazine originally started as an ezine only, but became available as a print issue to people interested in owning a print copy of this electronic magazine (four years after the magazine started). Down in the Dirt magazine has made every effort to continue to have issues available for free online. When Down in the Dirt magazine recieves so many short stories, print issues often appear more cluttered with smaller typefaces in our efforts to place more material in each issue. (In actuality, the Internet issues are often easier to read and cleaner looking than the print issues, when you can even jump from the Table of Contents in each web page issue to the writing of your choice...) Print issues are offered to people who are interested in keeping a hard copy for their own records, but since over the years Down in the Dirt magazine has always been available primarily as an e-zine for free on the web, free print copies are not given away.
    Because all magazines published from Scars Publications are released on the web (as a free downloadable PDF file in the past, and as a web page), Scars Publications does not pay contributors (and many have said that being published is payment enough), and it is always been the policy of Scars Publications to not give away free print issues.
    Scars Publications also offers (as a free service) all accepted writers their writing posted in the writings section of http://scars.tv (direct link http://scars.tv/cgi-bin/framesmain.pl?writers), which is probably a very popular service in our publishing options, because every accepted writer can have their writing expressly in their own web page to show to friends. Starting in the second half of 2010, Scars Publications has also released issues of cc&d magazine and Down in the Dirt magazine as 6" x 9" ISBN# books (which in 2011 have been appearing more and more in searches at amazon.com).
     Because all magazines published from Scars Publications are released on the web (as a free downloadable PDF file as well as on a web page), Scars Publications does not pay contributors (and many have said that being published is payment enough), and it is always been the policy of Scars Publications to not give away free print issues.
