Welcome to the bottle rockets press website!  Celebrating over 20 years in print!

 The submission/reading period for issue #42 is from Oct.1 — Dec. 1, 2019

Issue #41 was mailed out! (8/1/19) Limited number of copies left.


Please do not send any submissions before reading the new submission guidelines and the starting date of the reading period.

We reserve the right to close the submission reading period at any time ( when we have reached the publication limit.)

(We encourage sending your work in at the beginning of a submission period, not at the end.)

bottle rockets press no longer accepts e-mail submissions. All submissions must be mailed via post. [Please remember our contributors, 80% from the US, have always snail mailed in their submissions.]

If you reside outside the USA no SASE is necessary (for a reply.) You snail mail a submission. We reply by e-mail. That simple. ( Please include your e-mail address with your written submission so that we may reply to you. If no e-mail address is included, your submission will be discarded.)

If you reside within the USA, please continue to snail mail in your submission & include a SASE as you have done for the past 19 years.


See The Mag section for important information about subscriptions. 

 Please save all of us time & effort and read the submission guidelines before you submit. Thank you.  10-9-2019  (Year of the Wild Boar.)
