Red Rook Press is an up-and-coming, destined for greatness, student-led press that wants to celebrate the work of undergraduate writers. Our team of editors, website designers, media specialists, and acquisitionists, are taking time away from their fifth coffee of the day to facilitate a publication for people just like us (except maybe a little less caffeinated). So double knot your Doc Martens, pull up a chair, and craft something you want us to share.


We are happily celebrating our latest releases and want to share even more books with the world. We are merely a vessel of your work and have no intention of holding back the creativity of our writers, so do as you please, give us a piece of yourself that you want to be heard. We publish both an online and print issue of the chosen works and are elated to get your work to as many people as possible.


Simultaneous Submissions: Perfectly fine – just make sure you let us know if your work is selected elsewhere

Payment: We pay our writers in contributor copies
