Privacy Policy

When will Peeking Cat contact you?


If you submit a piece of work to any of Peeking Cat’s publications, we will email you to let you know whether your work has been accepted, and to answer any questions you may have or request further information from you that we may require in order to publish your work. We will also email you to let you know when the publication your work appears in has been published, with links to the download and print copies if you would like to see or purchase the magazine.


If you submit work to Peeking Cat, you will also be signed up to the newsletter – this is to make it easy to let you know when new work (including yours) is on the website and when we have new calls for submissions you may be interested in. If you don’t want to submit anything, we can send you the Peeking Cat email newsletter if you sign up to it here. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time.

How to opt out of communication

If you would no longer like to receive our newsletter, you can unsubscribe using the link at the bottom of any of our newsletters. Alternatively, email and we will manually remove your email address from our records.
