The Three Dollar Squirrel, a monthly zine by writers for writers on the act, art, and process of writing will be getting a facelift and relaunching August 2012. Posing one question per month, the Squirrel will be offering participants the chance to tell the story of their own process as insight and encouragement to other writers. Participants get exposure and the opportunity to network with their readers. All participants receive a free PDF copy of the issue they are in.


You can also follow Diggory, our mascot, on Twitter here.


Each issue of the Three Dollar Squirrel is available for viewing online through Issuu, an e-zine publishing platform. Due to the economy and printing expenses, the zine will not be available for print though a yearly book is under consideration.

Deadlines are the same every month:
The question for the month is posted on the 1st.
Reminders are sent out on the 10th and 15th.
Submissions are due by the 25th.
The zine publishes on the 1st of the month.


Join the list to receive the monthly topic as well as automated reminders. You will email your response to the publisher by the deadline. (instructions below) This is an announcement list only.


All answers to monthly questions should be emailed to ria.selvaggio at gmail dot com. By submitting your replies, you grant Three Dollar Squirrel the right to publish your submission in the monthly zine as well as any promotional uses and books.

When emailing your submissions, you will need to include your full name or the name you want to appear in the zine (pseudonyms are acceptable), as well as up to three links for publication under your submission.

Links can be your personal site, your blog, social network (Twitter, Flickr, Facebook, etc) and/or a site where your writing is. We prefer not to censor so please avoid using profanity.

The word count is 60 – 800 words.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Pen in hand,
Ria :)
