Red Hen Press

Red Hen Press, one of the few literary presses in the Los Angeles area, was founded in 1994 by Kate Gale and Mark E. Cull with the intention of keeping creative literature alive. Our focus as a literary press is to publish poetry, literary fiction, and nonfiction.

We, Red Hen Press, acknowledge that we do our work of fostering the future of literature on the occupied and seized territory that belongs to the Tongva, Gabrielino, and Kizh people who are the original inhabitants of the region of Los Angeles. We recognize that we benefit from living and working on their ancestral homeland and wish to pay our respects to the Ancestors, Elders, and Relatives both past, present, and future by affirming their sovereign rights as First Peoples.
