We are not currently open to unsolicited queries. We were founded in 2018 to share new voices in poetry and short fiction. Please enter on of our writing contests on Submittable. We can't wait to read your work!


A Kansas City Publisher for the epic acceleration of great literature, poetry, children's books, and fine arts materials. Flying Ketchup Press-- to discover and develop new voices in poetry, drama, fiction and non-fiction with a special emphasis in new short stories. We are a publisher made by and for creatives in the Heartland. Our dream is to salvage lost treasure troves of written and illustrated work-- to create worlds of wonder and delight; to share stories. Maybe yours. 

Ever wonder why it’s hard to find a good story, something satiable, satisfying, and just plain good? Sometimes, don’t you wish you could be transported to another world, just for a moment? Wish you could read something, but you can’t find what you are looking for? Maybe you are a writer who has worked for decades on your craft, but still, your audience is undiscovered? Is your high-quality work left unpublished? No worries. Here our worlds collide. Readers meet new authors. Authors meet your readers. 

“When I have a little money, I buy books; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes.”  – Erasmus
