No Longer A Publication?
After a few years functioning as a small publication, Read the Dirt has transitioned into the role of a “producer.” You can think of it as a mini “investigative fund” to help organizers and emerging journalists produce writing and get published.
Much of our work is based in a respect for “experts-by-experience” and the value in hearing directly from people directly engaging this changing world. Many of these experts are too busy or can’t be bothered to write—and that’s where we come in.

Read the Dirt lobbies on behalf of all its writers to receive writer fees from publications. Soon we hope to offer our own funding, however at the moment we are without funds. Contact us if you are interested in supporting this critical work. We are pursuing 501c3 status.
