Cats with Thumbs is currently looking for poetry and short fiction submissions for the May, 2010 issue. Reading period for that issue ends April, 15 (Tax Day in the U.S. We are nothing if not amusing). Submissions sent before the Current Issue was published are still being considered or the writers have already been contacted regarding the status of those submissions.
One area Cats with Thumbs is really looking to break ground in is in bringing new voices to publication. We are actively soliciting previously unpublished poets and short fiction writers. Details can be found on the Guidelines page.
Submissions are always being accepted and read, the deadline is only for the next issue so preparations for that issue can be made. We look forward to hearing from you.
