BatCat Press Open Reading Period

BatCat Press summer reading period runs until July 31. They take all genres in any length, and ultimately aim to publish 2-3 full books a year, with 1-2 smaller projects (chapbooks, broadsides, etc).

BatCat Press is staffed by high school students who attend Lincoln Park Performing Arts Charter High School (Midland, PA). All staff members “major” in literary arts and are upperclassmen who have taken at least two semesters of bookbinding (both of which are taught by Deanna Mulye, who also runs the press). The students read submissions, discuss what should be published, and then physically print and make all of the books in-house, by hand. Their run numbers vary depending on the project – they averaged about 200 copies per title this year.
