Letterpress & Binding Services
Bottle of Smoke Press is a publisher of limited edition books, chapbooks & broadsides. Our publishing schedule has been filled through 2012. We prefer e-mail submissions, but will accept mailed submissions. A SASE should be enclosed with all paper submissions, should you expect any unused works be returned to you. We regret that we cannot comment on your work or provide literary criticism.
Manuscripts should have the author's name and address on every page. Please, no simultaneous submissions. Please send no more than five poems at a time. More if the poems are very short, but please, no full book manuscripts without first contacting us.
We never charge authors to publish their work or ask for any kind of financial support from authors as any condition for publication. We are willing to put our money on the line for work that we believe in and have the time to publish. Vanity Presses and pay-to-play presses are not necessarily a bad thing, but they are not what we are about.
We have published Bottle, an annual all-broadside Magazine, however, that project is on hold for the foreseeable future.
Bottle of Smoke Press retains the copyright to the layout and design of the chapbook or broadside. The copyright for poetry and artwork submitted will remain with the poet/artist. This will be stated on the rear of the title page in all copies.
Anyone contemplating a submission is welcome to examine our chapbooks before sending a manuscript. Sample copies are available by following this link.
Please, no spam e-mail submissions, no simultaneous submissions.
All submissions and inquiries regarding submissions may be made by US mail or e-mail.
