Here at Burning Eye Books we think of ourselves an an upstart indie punk publishing co.

We are a small independent publisher in the South West predominately specialising in promoting spoken word artists. We aim to dispel the assumption that performance poetry does not transfer well to page as well as give emerging and established artist opportunities to be published where they might be rejected from other traditional poetry publishers. As well as poetry, we publish indie fiction, please have a look at our webstore for new release and popular titles.
