About Mothmaw Press

Flapping into cyberspace
Established in 2015, Mothmaw Press is an independent publisher of short fiction and poetry, specialising in innovative and interesting writing. Our first anthology was paperback only, but that drove up the cost for our readers. As such we are making a strategic move into cyberspace and using Patreon to host it. This way we can make the publications cheaper, and get our readership to be actively involved in the creation of each book.

By becoming a patron you are essentially subscribing to an online magazine. As a Patron of Mothmaw Press, you will only pay whenever a new and complete magazine comes out. We will post progress updates and drafts so our readers can help shape the magazine, but you are only paying for the finished product. The rest is free. 

Do I need to be a patron to submit work?
No. All submissions are 100% free and will remain that way forever. I have no interest in your credit card details or the name of your first pet. Of course our readers will want to contribute, but they have no advantage over non-paying contributors. Life isn't pay to play here, we aren't a big video game company. Your writing succeeds on its own merit only.  

Stay innovative,
Mothmaw Press
