Scars Publications and Design is a springboard for people to get their writing in magazines, on the internet and in books - including possibly their own book! If you’ve got talent and want your voice to be heard, we can help make your dreams a reality. We offer music and sounds of writers reading (.aif, .au, .ra, .wav, mpg, .mp4, .mov and .mp3), bulletin boards for people to post their writing, art space for pieces to be displayed on line, magazines on line and in books you can get published in, and even a chance to publish your own book through us! Choose what you want to learn more about by selecting one of the options on the left. As for copyright stuff, insert usual copyright babble here, something about all rights being reserved by whoever created this junk, and stuff like that... yeah, all we ask is that you respect what was put together here, that’s all... Scars Publications & Design est. 1993, web site 1995 (previously at www.shout.net, members.aol.com and www.yotko.com)...



    Scars Publications has received writings from the United States, Canada, Australia, Belgium, England, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Malta, Norway, Pakistan, Russia, South Africa and Turkey (as well as input from both Japan and Slovenia), and is always looking for new writings from around the world to contribute to their two literary magazines: “Children, Churches and Daddies– (founded 1993) and “Down in the Dirt– (founded 2000). Our news section highlights news from around the globe, and our philosophy section highlights classic writing as well as modern philosophy essays. Browse through our chapbooks and books, play games, or enjoy work in our audio/video section, or even at our PodCasts or our radio station.




    “I am happy to say that I think you are one of the leaders in the indie presses right now and congrats on your dark greatness.”

— Mike Brennan
