Red Kitty is a labor of love, funded from our tattered apron pockets. Because of this, we very regrettably can’t pay artists and writers for their work, but we do our very best to make your work shine like a conflict-free diamond. By submitting a previously unpublished piece to Red Kitty, you will be giving us the first-print rights to your piece, if accepted. This only means that we were the first ones to publish it – you retain all other rights to your work.
Simultaneous submissions are allowed and encouraged – just let us know if someone else beats us to it.
We accept previously published work for the print issues, but please make us aware of this when you are submitting.
By submitting to Red Kitty, you authorize that your work is your own, that you own all rights to your work and that you are allowing Red Kitty to publish and distribute your work.
While we try to reply to all submissions, please be patient with us! Please allow 6-8 weeks for a response.
