Space Cat Press is a small press publishing several titles a year. In addition to commissioned work, we open occasional submission windows for space-themed anthologies.

We are not currently accepting novel or poetry collection submissions.

Space Cat Press welcomes diverse voices and stories. We encourage writers from under-represented groups to send us your work. Just make sure your submission fits our current theme and publication guidelines.


Here at Space Cat Press, we like to shake things up genre-wise as, in our experience, this makes for a creative combustion. Whatever space inspires you to write, be it traditional sci-fi, weird fiction or steampunk fairytales, we want to read it.

We hope to see submissions in any of the following forms:

  • Poetry
  • Short stories
  • Creative non-fiction
  • Flash fiction

We will pay a flat rate fee for each piece published in an anthology and offer a complimentary copy per author. The rate will be £5 for poems and flash fiction pieces (up to 1,000 words) and £10 for longer prose (1,000-3,000 words).
