Get your words ready! The Red Bike Press Short Fiction Contest opens July 1, 2018!



Red Bike Press is an indie publishing house located in San Luis Obispo, California, an idyllic spot on California’s Central Coast about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Red Bike Press will release its first book titles in 2018, dates to be announced.  It is our ultimate goal to unearth, publish and promote literary gems. Red Bike Press is not currently accepting book manuscript submissions.

Red Bike Press will also publish Red Bike Review, a literary magazine committed to discovery fresh voices and shining a light on underrepresented segments of the writing community.  The first issue of Red Bike Review will be published in 2018-2019.

In furtherance of our goal of giving ear to undiscovered writing talent, we proudly sponsor the Red Bike Review Short Fiction Contest.  The inaugural contest which will begin accepting submissions in spring 2018-2019.

Finally, Red Bike Press will soon publish Lit SLO, a regional magazine focusing on art in all its forms on California’s Central Coast.
