Our next Function has yet to be announced. In the meantime, check out our monthly series in Orlando, Loose Lips, as well as other BP book events happening all over the country.
Functionally Literate pairs the best writers in Central Florida with visiting writers from all over the world, bringing contemporary literature to the city of Orlando. Our past Functions have featured a slew of talented visitors, including the Director of the National Book Foundation, Lisa Lucas; National Book Award-finalist Lauren Groff; the award-winning Portuguese novelist Jacinto Lucas Pires; and the great Southern writer Padgett Powell.
Never miss an event. Upcoming Functions are always listed on this page, added to our Facebook page, and promoted in our monthly email.

Support one of Florida's only literary publishers by becoming a subscriber
Burrow Press publishes four, carefully selected books each year, offered in an annual subscription package for a mere $60, which is about the cost of a nice dinner after attending a Functionally Literate event. Subscribers directly support our publishing program, putting more money into our authors' pockets and allowing us to take more artistic risks with what we publish. In return, you get the year's 4 books + ebooks + free shipping, name recognition in each book and on this site, and membership into our not-so-secret society: the illiterati, to whom we offer random and delightful perks throughout the year.
