I've been a writer, artist, and graphic designer for more than 2 decades. With Red Basement, I hope to share my knowledge and expertise to help other artists prepare and publish their work in a growing digital market.

-Kennon Barton



The future looks bright for Red Basement, as our roster of writers and artists is already beginning to develop. With planned projects in poetry, art presentation, comic books, graphic novels, we hope to showcase a variety of artists local to the MS Gulf Coast. Additional projects will be added to the site as we near their respective release dates.



Write a short one-page story or free verse poem that includes or references Spring . There are no restraints as far as subject matter. By the end of the year, we should have enough monthly entries to publish a chapbook. Details will be forwarded to all participants at that time, but first, send your submissions to kennon.barton@redbasementpublishing.com.
