Print. Burrow Press is a nonprofit, independent publisher of literary fiction and creative nonfiction.
Flesh. Burrow Press was proud to have helped launch There Will Be Words, a monthly reading series here in Orlando. Now that that’s up and running, we’ve started a quarterly series called Functionally Literate: a literary function. Check out the site for upcoming readings.
Workshops. We offer a wide range of creative writing workshops taught by the talented folks who live in our community, from short stories to screenwriting to ghostwriting and back again. Check out the workshop page for details.
Donate. Are you wealthy, or extremely generous? Well, Burrow Press is a program of the Urban Think! Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit, and any generous donations you decide to bestow are tax deductible. The Foundationâ€™s other programs support cultural literacy in many different ways. Burrow Press works particularly close with Page 15, a childrenâ€™s literacy program that provides free tutoring and creative writing workshops to Orlando kids. Contact Ryan Rivas if youâ€™re interested in a targeted donation, or a Burrow Press sponsorship.
