Race for the Stars Submission Call

In our anthologies, we like to shake things up genre-wise. Whatever space inspires you to write, be it traditional sci-fi, weird fiction or steampunk fairy tales, we want to read it.

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

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

The theme for our first anthology is “Race for the Stars”. All submissions should connect loosely to a Space Race (past, present, imaginary). Memoirs, pieces about astronauts, alternative histories, and commentaries are all welcome. 

Some broader prompts:

  • The drive towards space exploration.
  • Technological advancements inspired by personal/international competition.
  • The human cost of rapid technological advancement.
  • Humanity’s unfolding place among the stars.

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.
