In 2015 and 2016 Burning Eye partnered up with Poetry Rivals, a national poetry competition which offers a chance to be published in an annual anthology and, if shortlisted, be entered into the Poetry Rivals Slam to compete with other finalists to become a champion. The prize? A pamphlet publishing deal!.

Our 2015 Winner Jamal Mehmood went on to release a pamphlet Little Boy Blue in November 2016.
