Burning Eye Books specialises in publishing Performance & Spoken Word Poetry. We have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic & are raising money to continue our groundbreaking publishing activity.
Burning Eye Books publishes performance & spoken word poetry. We published our first book in 2012. In a normal year around 66%+ of our income comes from selling books via poets at gigs & performances. As the performance circuit has been more or less closed down for most of 2020 & 2021 this has hit us hard. We are now crowdfunding to raise money to allow us to continue our work.
All money raised will be used to continue our publishing programme. Burning Eye Books is a not-for-profit organisation and the owner-partners work unpaid and have done since founding the business in 2011.
