DIRTY GIRLS SAY GOODBYE … for now
Thank you to all of our readers, contributors, and anyone who has ever believed in or supported our publication.
Dirty Girls Literary Magazine ran for two publication cycles, lasting one year. I created the magazine with my best friends in the whole world at my side. I was so excited to finally collaborate on one project together as writers, artists, and designers. Dirty Girls Magazine taught us a lot about the world, each other, and ourselves. It gave us a place to emote our art and feelings. The magazine was a chance to curate feminist voices from around the globe and showcase them on a common platform.
Thanks to Dirty Girls, I was able to meet wonderfully talented artists from around the world. Thanks to Dirty Girls, we were able to showcase unconventional identities and artists. The members of our team worked so hard to design and produce the zine, taking time out of their own busy lives and schedules to create something beautiful together. I am forever grateful for every one of them!
For those of you who have been excitedly waiting for Issue 3, we are sorry to tell you that due to circumstances beyond our control, the magazine will be temporarily out of production. 2020 has been an extremely trying year thus far. What started out as a temporary hiatus has extended into a prolonged goodbye. Our team has so much more in store for them, and so do all of you. Dirty Girls was the cocoon, and we are now bursting out of it to spread our wings.
I hope that Dirty Girls will live on forever in your hearts and minds. Art and stories will be available to view online at DirtyGirlsMagazine.com, and copies of Issues 1 and 2 are still available for purchase on The Book Patch and Etsy. https://app.thebookpatch.com/BookStore/dirty-girls-magazine-issue-1-/55e3a74d-a254-4626-9f1b-0083a2a5b43e and https://www.etsy.com/shop/SadShakti
As artists, we will still be creating and producing, but our projects may look different in the future. This is not just a goodbye, but also a “see you later.”
Look out for stories by Joelle Lambert, poetry by McKenzie Teter, art by Alexis McCloskey, and graphic design by Isabelle Azar.
Thank you to each and every one of you. Stay safe. Stay lovely,
and the Dirty Girls Team
