Exciting New Programs at Red Penguin Books – September 9, 2020

Red Penguin Books is excited to announce two of its newest programs, The Red Penguin Collection and The Red Penguin Review. Join us with literary associates JK Larkin and Nika Rose.

We are thrilled to introduce The Red Penguin Collection – a program for new and emerging authors – along with established authors – to publish their work in short form. Each collection is an anthology that will focus on a different theme or genre, ranging from mystery and romance to coming of age and social changes. Interested authors will submit up to 5,000 words of short stories, or essays. If Red Penguin accepts the submission for the limited spots in each Collection, the submission will be published and promoted through Red Penguin Books.

Our upcoming publications for The Red Penguin Collection are:


Sci-Fi Stories of the Future

Submission Deadline: September 15


It is all too easy to look back on the science fiction stories of the last century and question how far we have come. “Weren’t our cars supposed to be driving themselves by now? Why can’t my cell phone produce a holographic girlfriend for me? How is it that we can still be dealing with the same global health crises we did so many years ago when we are living in the future?” We can contemplate these questions and many more for hours, or instead we can use this opportunity to escape our current world and dive into the pages of our dreams and recreate the stories of wonder that we are so accustomed to reading.

    What Lies Beyond is the second anthology to be a part of the new Red Penguin division The Red Penguin Collection. We are looking for submission of up to 5000 words, all within the scope of the science fiction genre, to include in this book. If you like to tell stories of aliens, holograms, or galaxies far, far, away, this is the place for you!




A Trip For The Books

Submission Deadline: September 30

In a time when the world feels as though it has been paused, we could all benefit from a return to when leaving the house was easier to look ahead toward. A Trip For The Books, the third book in our new publishing project, The Red Penguin Collection, aims to compile essays, short stories, and other works that pertain to travel and what it means to venture forth from the homes in which we have found ourselves limited. In a submission of up to 5000 words, you can send in your selection that speaks of your vacations around the globe, your thoughts and practices regarding such journeys, or even a fictionalized telling of someone else’s travels. The page is your oyster.






We are excited to announce The Red Penguin Review– a quarterly literary magazine dedicated to the emerging author- as well as the mid-career and established author who seek a place to explore their voice in a new way! Interested authors will submit up to 1500 words of poems, essays, and short stories, short plays, and/or excerpts of larger works. After a review process a select number of submissions will be published in the quarterly review alongside a featured interview (of notable authors and other publishing insiders), an article on a special topic in publishing by our founder and president Stephanie Larkin, writing tips & prompts, curated ads and MORE! We would be excited for you to join our network of authors and editors!
