What is The Survivor Digest?
The Survivor Digest is a quarterly Zine (magazine) that was released in August of 2006 which includes columns, stories, poetry, creative writing, original artwork, campaigns and resources for survivors by survivors and whatever else we can come up with to help make an impact in the lives of survivors and supporters worldwide.
Participants interested are able to send in their materials via e-mail to the digest for consideration in an upcoming issue. A new digest will be released every 3 months for sale online via the 'Voices of Strength' web site and the next edition will be released May 15, 2007 so now is a great time to get out your pens, start typing, pull out your paint brushes and do something important for the worldwide community. Empowerment = Passion on the road to recovery...

What is a Zine?
"Zines are publications done for the love of doing them, not to make a profit or a living. Most zines are photocopied. Some are printed offset like a magazine, but with a print run of hundreds or possibly thousands instead of hundreds of thousands or more. In a zine, you might find typos, misspelled words, improper grammar, and brilliant or radical or just plain honest ideas that simply aren't allowed in Time, Newsweek, or People Magazine. Zines are different from e-zines, which are "zines" published on the Internet (via personal web pages or email lists). -Underground Press
What kind of material can I submit?
Any of the following items are up for consideration in the up and coming survivor digests, however we are FULL ON LONG LINED POETRY so please do not send poetry for the May edition unless it's about 10 lineslong.

How do I submit my Material?
Please send all materials to me, Haullie Free with the below information included. If you are sending picture attachments please make sure they are clear and un-sized so that they are big enough to re-size. If you are sending file attachments please make sure they are not already formatted and do not press the "enter" button when you type a story to move down a line cause that takes a lot of editing.
