Florida isn’t known as a bastion of literature. We embrace this misperception with good humor. That’s why we refer to our subscribers as “the illiterati.” Burrow Press subscribers are adventurous readers who directly support our publishing efforts, putting more money into our authors’ pockets and allowing us to take more artistic risks.

Since 2010, BP has provided over 1,400 opportunities
for writers to publish and share their work.

Burrow Press is an independent, literary publisher based in Orlando, FL. As one of only a few literary publishers in Florida, our mission is twofold: to expand the boundaries of Florida Literature by (1) publishing the best contemporary writing by new and established authors, and (2) fostering literary community in Orlando, Florida, and beyond. BP is a program of the Urban Think Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit umbrella organization to Page 15 (children’s literacy) and Burrow Press. Between the two programs, Orlandoans of all ages have the opportunity to experience quality literary programming in their city.
