Producing quarterly issues for the first year of Black Cat Magazine will cost at least $5,000. The vast majority of the money raised will go toward paying authors and artists for the rights to publish their work in the magazine.
Founded in March 2021, Black Cat Press publishes Black Cat Magazine, a literary journal that focuses on speculative fiction, poetry, and art. Our mission is to use literature and art to help build a culture and community rooted in liberation, non-hierarchical relationships, and community-based participatory institutions. We are anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-queerphobic and transphobic, antifascist, and anti-imperialist. We seek to amplify other artistic voices from marginalized communities (Indigenous, Black, Latinx, Asian, LGBTQIA+/GSRM, neurodivergent, folks living with disabilities, etc).
