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.


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).

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.
