Submissions

Space Cat Press is a small press that publishes one to two titles each year.

We are NOT currently accepting novel or poetry collection submissions.

Submission Call:

Submissions are now: Closed!

The theme for our 2021 anthology is: Aliens & Otherness.

The theme for our 2020 anthology is Race to the Stars.

How to submit:

To submit, send your piece(s) to: sub.spacecatpress@gmail.com along with a 50-word bio and a list of anywhere your submitted piece(s) have previously been published. These will not be taken into account during the selection process but will save time later on. 

Please put the title of one of your submissions in the subject line of your email.

If possible, send your submission(s) as Word and/or PDF document(s) in a Times New Roman or Calibri font.

Please do not send us more than 3 pieces. 

Prose pieces should be no more than 3,000 words

Poetry should be no more than 40 lines long. 

What to expect when you submit to us:

Once you have sent us your submission, you can expect an email back from us within a few days confirming that we have received it. 

We will compile the shortlist after we close the submission window and will email you to let you know our decision as soon as possible. 

We put all our shortlisted pieces through a couple of rounds of editing to ensure they are the best possible versions of themselves and to format them in line with our house style. We will require all our shortlisted authors to make time for that process. So long as both parties are happy with the edits you have made, we will then put your piece(s) in the anthology when we publish it in the autumn. 

We will do about a month of prelaunch marketing before we publish the anthology and will invite you to participate in that as much as you wish. You can get an idea of how we promote our anthologies and authors in this review of last year’s launch

Our version of the publication process is very collaborative and we hope you find that as valuable as we do.
