She has O levels and A levels, she is a qualified Complimentary Therapist with well over 20 years under her belt, she is also a counsellor and healer, and she is an awesome cook!

She has had poems published in The Interpreters House and Obsessed with Pipework, and anthologies such as Beautiful Dragons.


  1. I have questions about your call for submissions.

    1. Would you accept work from someone who is not a Pagan, but is an ally?
    2. Are the writers being paid? If so, how much?


    • Hi there. To answer your questions:

      1) We are not affiliated with any religion, so it doesn’t matter what religion you are at all. We are simply a press that publishes work around mythology, folklore and fairytales. Inevitably a bit of paganism /magic slips in.

      2) Writers in print publications are paid a percentage of profits via PayPal every six months, as long as each writer would earn £1 GBP or more. The amount varies, as it depends on how many writers are in the book, and how many copies are sold. Three Drops Press keeps 20%, the other 80% is split between contributors.

      Webzine contributors are not currently paid, as we don’t take in any money for the webzine, so can’t afford it.

      Hope this helps! – Kate
