Rabbit Catastrophe Press

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Rabbit Catastrophe Press is based in Lexington, KY.  We publish:

  • Rabbit Catastrophe Review, an annual print literary journal of experimental and traditional poetry, including the winners of our annual Real Good Poem Prize.
  • Chapbooks of poetry chosen from our Girls Like Us chapbook contest
  • Various print ephemera, such as broadsides, bookmarks, stickers, buttons, etc.

Our Printing Process
Our books are hand made with a variety of perfect and sewn bindings, and our covers are screenprinted by local and regional printmakers.  The design staff loves to experiment with new techniques and materials, so the look changes with each piece we publish. Because everything is made by humans, each copy of a book is unique.

We feel that visually and textually pleasing printed texts provide the physical space to contemplate literature and art slowly and thoroughly.

A Note About Our Title
“Rabbit Catastrophe” is the title of a Robert Musil story from his 1936 collection Posthumous Papers of a Living Author. Read it here.
