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

Burning Eye Books is 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. We look for the bold, the fearless and the strange. We are dedicated to providing an inclusive portfolio of the best and most promising performance poets in the UK.

"They are not afraid to take risks and push the boundaries beyond conventions"

"Incredible, varied and, most importantly, daring publications." 

"Consistently cool."
