Bottle of Smoke Press was founded in 2002. Our goal is to publish books that will be well received and enjoyed by those who read them. We publish works by new poets as well as by well-established poets. Our only requirement is that the work be interesting and important. We are proud to have worked with some of the giants in the small press scene and to have also published many new writers and artists whose work is no less incredible.
We welcome submissions, but regret that we cannot provide criticism of your work. 2015 was a very busy year and 2016 promises to be even busier. In addition to our current titles, we have more books in the works for this year. It is unlikely that we will be able to publish any additional books in 2016. Anyone interested in submitting book proposals is welcome to, but please understand that the response time could be significant. Please check the submission guidelines.
In addition to our own releases, we have started printing and binding broadsides and books for other presses. No job is too large or too small. Please see Letterpress & Binding Services for some samples of the work that we have done for other presses.
