Editorial Focus: 

BatCat Press publishes handbound limited editions of poetry and prose. We aim to publish books, chapbooks, and broadsides that are the perfect combination of excellent writing and interesting design. Part of our mission is to provide students a unique behind-the-scenes experience in publishing. The press is staffed and operated by students of Lincoln Park Performing Arts Charter School in Midland, PA.

Tips From the Editor: 

Quirky is good, quality is key. We especially like work that is intelligent and that will appeal to a broad audience. We welcome submissions of all genres, styles, and forms, whether conventional or hard-to-describe. Multimedia submissions are welcome but must include a strong writing element. Submissions may be of any length, but must be able to "stand alone."
